Summer @ Carondelet
High School


Carondelet offers coed advancement classes for students from all high schools and remediation classes for Carondelet and De La Salle students. 

 

Information for Attendees

We will have a large number of students on campus attending all Carondelet and iDTech courses. Traffic will not be as congested as during the school year, but please plan to arrive well ahead of your class start time. Also, please pull forward and to the end of the academic building to drop students off so that we do not back up Treat Blvd. 

Attendance will be taken on class meetings days and we will reach out if these become excessive. Students can stay on campus after their close to get work done or to put in extra time. The Inner Court and outdoor areas are available. No food service will be available.

 

 

Registration for Summer courses closes Thursday, June 13 at noon

(except Algebra - Head Start, which closes June 30 at 11:59 p.m.)

AP Bridge Courses

AP Bridge courses help students prepare for the rigorous AP classes in the coming academic year. These courses are for students who have been approved to enroll in either AP Chemistry or AP Biology and who have received an invitation from the Vice Principal of Academics to enroll in the course.

Advancement courses are in session 
Monday, June 10 - Friday, July 26
Online, with four required in-person classes with faculty

Biology AP Bridge

AP Bridge courses help students prepare for the rigorous AP classes in the coming academic year. These courses are for students who have been approved to enroll in either AP Chemistry or AP Biology and who have received an invitation from the Vice Principal of Academics to enroll in the course.

 
Course Description

The Biology Bridge course is a study of life and covers a broad spectrum of topics including the structure and function of cells, biochemistry, genetics, evolution, and the interrelationships between all living things. The survey course builds upon the physics and chemistry principles covered in earlier science classes and will provide a foundation of understanding to enable success in AP Biology. Students must be prepared to engage with material independently and be eager to interact with classmates and faculty in a virtual environment.

The student will access the class on Schoology and complete 4 units of study. Each unit consists of video lessons for background and 2 activities. During FOUR in-person meetings, tests will be administered to assess progress through the curriculum. Completion of in-person assessments must average to 80% for students to move to AP Biology when school starts in August. If students know they are not going to be able to reach that level of mastery, they should request a course transfer to Biology Honors before August 1, 2019 in order to earn a spot in Honors.

Prerequisites 
Completion of Conceptual Physics and Chemistry and approval of Department Chair.

Textbook
CK-12 Biology Advanced Concepts

AP Bridge courses help students prepare for the rigorous AP classes in the coming academic year. These courses are for students who have been approved to enroll in either AP Chemistry or AP Biology and who have received an invitation from the Vice Principal of Academics to enroll in the course.

 
Course Description

Topics for this class include atomic structure, electron arrangement in atoms, properties of gases, liquids and solids, stoichiometry, and acids and bases. This survey course builds upon the physics principles covered in earlier science classes and will provide a foundation of understanding to enable success in AP Chemistry. Students must be prepared to engage with material independently and be eager to interact with classmates and faculty in a virtual environment. Computer simulations are used to obtain, organize and analyze data. Conclusions are developed using both quantitative and qualitative information. Prerequisite: Completion of Conceptual Physics and approval of Department Chair.

Prerequisites 
Completion of Conceptual Physics and approval of Department Chair.

Textbook
CK 12: Chemistry for High School– recommended as a resource

 

Students will self-study using the Coursera course: Chemistry, offered by the University of Kentucky. Registration is free.

Students will complete Weeks 1 through 5 of the content.

A Carondelet faculty member will supervise discussion boards to answer questions posted to the weekly units via Schoology.

During FOUR in-person meetings, tests will be administered to assess progress through the curriculum.

Completion of in-person assessments must average to 80% for students to move to AP Chemistry when school starts in August. If students know they are not going to be able to reach that level of mastery, they should request a course transfer to Chemistry Honors before August 1, 2019 in order to earn a spot in Honors.

 

Remediation Courses

Carondelet’s remediation and credit recovery program is designed to help students achieve expected competencies in core academic subjects that were not met in previous academic year(s). Through intensive courses and smaller-than-average student-to-teacher ratios, students will have the chance to gain a better understanding of challenging material in a supportive environment.

Remediation courses are in session:
Monday, June 10 to Friday, July 26
No classes July 4 and 5

Biology

Semester 1 and/or 2
Monday, June 17 - Monday, July 22

Class is held on DLS campus. Please register on the DLS website.

Tuition
$625 per semester; $1,250 yearlong

Course DescriptionDe La Salle will be offering a credit recovery Hybrid Biology Survey course this summer for students who received a “D” or “F” in their Biology course. Students must sign up for the specific semester they are looking to remediate. This lab time is mandatory for UC/NCAA approval and there are no exceptions. Since the summer make up courses are short in duration, lab attendance is required. Therefore, students may not be able to make up missed labs, and those missed labs will result in a zero.

Chemistry

Carondelet and DLS students only

Tuition
$1,050 yearlong; $600 per semester

Course Description
Topics for this class include atomic structure, electron arrangement in atoms, periodic table, properties of gases, liquids and solids, acids and bases, nuclear and organic chemistry. Using inquiry to develop understanding, students will develop good methods of problem solving and proper laboratory techniques. Students will acquire understanding of scientific concepts, knowledge of scientific facts and proficiency in scientific process skills. Computer simulations and traditional laboratory techniques are used to obtain, organize and analyze data. Conclusions are developed using both quantitative and qualitative information. Come join in the chemistry fun - the mole the merrier!

Textbook
Digital textbook will be distributed at beginning of the course via Schoology. No cost.

Geometry

Updated: Wed., June 5 9:00 a.m.

Geometry remediation will not be offered on Carondelet's campus this summer. You are welcome to register with these vendors to complete your remediation.

Please contact Mrs. Silveira if you have questions.
