Walnut High School Summer School Programs!
Summer school at Walnut High School is comprised of three separate programs, each of which has its guidelines and requirements. Programs offered are WVUSD, Mt. SAC (High School courses taught exclusively on Walnut HS campus but funded by Mt. SAC), and Dedicated 2 Learning.
The WVUSD program is designed to meet the basic graduation requirements like English or History, develop skills for English language learners and support students with Individual Education Plans. Please see WVUSD link to the right. This program is free of charge and the only program run exclusively by WHS and WVUSD. Students in need of making up a course must meet with their GLC as enrollment in most of these courses will be by GLC approval only.
The Mt. SAC program is funded by Mt. SAC and taught exclusively on our campus. Please see Mt. SAC information on the right. All classes are high school classes and A-G approved. The teachers are WVUSD teachers but the courses are funded by Mt. SAC. This program allows students to accelerate or make up classes. This program is free of charge. Students will have the opportunity to apply for a lottery for whatever class they are interested in through the application that will be posted here from February 10 through February 18th.
The Dedicated to Learning (D2L) program
is a tuition-based program run by an independent company on our campus. This program is designed for students interested in supplementing their traditional school year with additional coursework. D2L is a fully accredited program running courses to provide area students with opportunities for learning and advancement. For more information, please visit their website at www.dedicated2learning.org
