Registration for Summer School Courses Opens May 7

Registration for summer courses in Fairfax County Public Schools (FCPS) opens Monday, May 7.

These courses are for students who want to accelerate their course of study during the summer, need to recover a credit or pass a Virginia Standards of Learning (SOL) end-of-course test.


  • The Summer Online Campus is open to FCPS and non-FCPS students wanting to accelerate their academic program or for enrichment or credit recovery. Students must meet grade level, prerequisite, and technical requirements.  In addition to academic courses, a new online enrichment offering,
  • Technology Tools for Success for middle school students, will be available.  New online high school enrichment courses include Creative Writing and three non-credit courses: Algebra 2 Head Start, College Essay Writing, and Rich Writing.  Course dates vary.
  • The Term Graduate Academy is offered for current FCPS seniors who need to earn one standard credit in algebra 2, geometry, English 12, or Virginia-U.S. government in order to graduate by August 31.   All Term Graduate Academy courses will be held at Lake Braddock Secondary School (LBSS) from July 9-27.  Bus transportation from satellite sites will be available.
  • FCPS will also provide two sessions for students seeking SOL credit.  An SOL writing test remediation session will be held July 9-20, and a nonwriting test session (algebra 1, geometry, biology, chemistry, world history-geography 1, world history-geography 2, and Virginia-U.S. History) will be held July 9-24 at LBSS.

FCPS term graduates who passed an SOL course but failed the SOL end-of-course test will be able to retake a required test through the test-only program.  The writing test will be administered July 16-20 at LBSS and nonwriting tests will be administered August 7 (and possibly August 8, if needed) at different locations in the county.
