Mission:  The 2017 Summer Esto Vir Academy is one component of the 2017 Summer Academy.  This program component provides assistance for Chaminade student who are in need of remediating and recovering academic credit.

  • For each 1.0 credit course, students are required to complete 40 hours of instructional time and 20 hours of academic assignments.
  • Locations for private tutorials generally include Chaminade classrooms, the Chaminade Library and local public libraries.
  • Students and summer faculty are required to maintain an academic portfolio of all summer coursework.
  • The private tutor will outline all summer course requirements (i.e. assignments, quizzes, tests, reading, research, etc.)

  • Summer coursework does not alter the student's grade point average.
  • Student transcripts will reflect completed 2016 summer coursework.
  • Chaminade's Library will be open June and July from 9:00 AM - 2:00 PM, Monday - Thursday.
  • Students are required to complete all academic deficiencies by Friday, July 28, 2017Failure to comply with this school policy will result in non-admittance for the 2016-2017 academic school year.

Tuition:   A .5 credit course=$950.00 and a 1.0 credit course=$1,900.00.  Payment in full in the form of a check made payable to Chaminade College Preparatory School is due at the first tutorial session.

Attendance:   Regular attendance is required.  A third absence from a tutorial will result in loss of credit and the student will be dropped from the course.  Summer tuition is non-refundable.

One Additional Tutoring Option to Remediate Loss of Credit:

1) Six week summer school programs are available in various locations.  Local public school districts offer a wide range of summer courses and can be contacted for additional information.  These programs generally run from early June through July.  Please Note:  Enrolling in a six-week summer course with most public school districts will award the student .5 credit.  Please be certain to make this inquiry regarding the amount of credit that will be awarded.  In the past Chaminade students have enrolled in six-week courses believing that one full credit would be awarded only to learn that they remained deficient of .5 credit.
