Summer often allows students to catch up, get ahead, and explore where their education can take them. Offering the right courses is the key to getting and keeping students engaged with their academic content. Here are five of Edmentum’s EdOptions Academy summer learning courses.

With the support of our highly qualified, state-certified online teachers, your students can make progress toward their academic and career goals this summer.

EdOptions Academy Summer Learning Courses #1: Get Ahead with Advanced Placement Courses

Summer break is an outstanding opportunity for students to get ahead and potentially lighten their workload for the upcoming school year. It’s also a great time for students to get a head start on Advanced Placement coursework to ensure they are well-prepared to ace that AP test when the time comes.

Students can explore advanced options in core subjects, take courses to brush up on ACT and SAT topics, or even prepare for the Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery (ASVAB) exam.

EdOptions Academy Summer Learning Courses #2: Get Active This Summer with Lifetime & Leisure Sports

Health and physical education credits can sometimes be challenging to squeeze in during the school year. The good news is that students don’t need to be in a gym to fulfill these credits. Courses like Lifetime & Leisure Sports help students build real-world skills—and our virtual teachers make the courses fun.

Students can build on personal passions for health and fitness with more advanced courses like Personal Training Concepts and Sports Officiating. For students looking for options that are a little less sports-centric, EdOptions Academy summer learning courses also offer options like Health & Personal Wellness and Life Skills.

EdOptions Academy Summer Learning Courses #3: Expand Horizons by Learning a New Language

Without the full course load of the school year, not to mention after-school clubs and extracurricular activities, summer break is a great chance for students to dive deep into a specific topic—such as learning a new language.

Whether students are interested in pursuing a language not currently offered at their school or looking to get ahead on college requirements, EdOptions Academy summer learning courses offer rigorous classes of Chinese, French, German, and Spanish to help students start down the path to fluency and build cultural knowledge.

Our Certified Nurse Aide course helps students develop an understanding of the human body, build the skills necessary to provide high-quality care, and prepare students to take the NNAAP exam.

For students looking to enter other career fields, EdOptions Academy features more than 160 semesters of courses covering 12 career clusters and enables 42 multi-year course pathways.

EdOptions Academy Summer Learning Courses #5: This Summer, Explore a Personal Passion like Fashion 

Sometimes, students just don’t have room in their class schedules to take all the fun electives they’d like. Summer is a great time to take some of those courses that sound interesting but may not fit within graduation requirements, like fashion.

No matter what your students are passionate about, chances are they can find an EdOptions Academy course that grabs their attention, like Gothic Literature, Social Issues, Creative Writing, and so many more. Plus, these elective courses can help students explore career and college course interests.
