GSLA Summer School
Discover The Patrick School
The Garden State Learning Academy, the name of the summer school program at The Patrick School, has provided a range of summer school opportunities for students for nearly a decade. A small portion of the students at the GSLA come from The Patrick School: the majority of the GSLA enrollment comes from surrounding public and private schools in Union, Essex and Middlesex counties (the GSLA has served students from south Jersey, Pennsylvania, New York, North Carolina and Florida in the past as well).
Students can choose among three types of courses:
- 30 hour credit recovery course ((this is for students who failed a course and need to make up the credits to pass to the next grade level and graduate)
- 60 hour credit recovery courses (this is for students who failed a course and need to make up the credits to pass to the next grade level and graduate)
- 120 hour original credit courses (for students who have never taken a course before, looking to advance their standing in a math track, add credits, or take enrichment courses).
Example scenario for a 30/60 hour math course: a student received a 58 in Geometry and needs to take the course over in summer school to move on to Algebra II the following year.
Example scenario for a 120 hour math course: an honor roll student with a proficiency in math receives a 97 in Algebra I during the 9th grade. He or she then decides to take a 120 hour, original credit Geometry course in the summer so he or she accelerate to take Algebra II during 10th grade.
Since the Garden State Learning Academy falls under The Patrick School umbrella, the GSLA is fully certified and approved by the Middle States Association and by the NCAA.
