    Credit Recovery for English, Mathematics, Science, and History courses:  

    Credit recovery courses will be offered in English, mathematics, science, and history subject areas.  Credit recovery is an option that allows students to participate in targeted remediation in areas that they did not pass in the subject area throughout the school year.  If the student successfully completes this remediation through the credit recovery program they will then receive the standard credit for completion of the course. 

    PHS school counselors and administrators will contact students that are in need of utilizing this program. In order to be eligible for Credit Recovery, students must have earned a final grade of 50% or better in the course.

    Virtual Virginia Courses that offer Original Credit:  

    Students have the opportunity to participate in new courses for original credit through the online Virtual Virginia Program.  Virtual Virginia offers 90 online courses available to all learners in grades 6-12. Students can work from any location in which they have a computer and a reliable internet connection (this does allow students to travel over the summer and still be able to complete course work).  However, students are expected to log on every day that summer school is in session (June 15th – July 29th).  

    Virtual education programs provide additional instruction choices for students in non-traditional settings through distance learning options. These online learning programs offer flexibility to students while providing instruction aligned with the Standards of Learning.  VDOE’s Virtual Virginia Program offers a wide variety of classes in order to meet the needs of students who otherwise may be unable to take a course.  Eligible students enroll in Virtual Virginia through the student’s home school.  To view a list of Virtual Virginia courses please visit:  https://www.virtualvirginia.org/summer/
