Each summer an extensive summer school program is offered for Incoming TK/K- 9th Grades. This summer school program is 4 weeks long and usually begins approximately one week after the last day of school.
This summer program includes Academic Summer School, Special Education Summer School and Enrichment Summer School.
Volunteer opportunities are available for students incoming 9th grade or older -- see details below.
Academic Summer School for Incoming 1st-9th Grades
Saratoga Union School District offers Academic Summer School for students in Incoming 1st-9th Grades. These classes are offered to a limited number of students on an invitation-only basis. Students must be recommended by their classroom teacher(s) in order to be invited to this program. Invitations are usually sent to families in March and participating families must agree to miss no more than 2 days of class. This Academic Summer School program is offered at no-cost, and there is usually a waiting list.
Academic Summer School classes are capped at approximately 15 students (8-10 students for Incoming 1st Grade classes) to allow for small group and 1-to-1 instruction with a credentialed teacher and volunteer high school teaching assistants.
Incoming 1st Grade Reading is a half-morning class held at a SUSD elementary school site.
Incoming 2nd-3rd Grade Reading is a full-morning class held at a SUSD elementary school site.
Incoming 4th-9th Grade Reading is a half-morning class held at Redwood Middle School.
Incoming 4th-9th Grade English Learner (EL) Academy is a half-morning class held at Redwood Middle School.
All Academic Summer School parents are highly encouraged to attend a Parent Information Meeting (usually held in May) before the academic program begins to learn about the program and meet the summer school teachers and principals.
