Summer Session

  • Summer eAcademy is open to students who have completed their freshman year. Students do not enroll in eAcademy the summer right after eighth grade. The Summer eAcademy session is designed for advanced placement students or those in specialty programs who will experience scheduling conflicts in their four-year Individual Plan of Study (IPS).

    The compressed rate of learning is rigorous and students must be prepared to devote an average minimum of ten or more hours per week per .50 credit course to assignment completion. Remember, students are compacting eighteen weeks of work into an eight-week summer session. More information about how courses work and time on committment is available in our Expectations channel. Click here to learn more about course structure.

    The eAcademy Courses page on this site indicates which courses will be offered each term, including summer. An asterisk (*) will be added when we are sure a course will run. After working with their counselor and getting an enrollment permission code, students may enroll. The enrollment link is on the eAcademy Courses page.

    Dates for all semesters, including the summer session, are posted. Click here to see the schedules page. Students will start the orientation process as indicated, prior to the course start date.

    Notifications:

    • Please monitor your student Google mail and personal email accounts; messages do not appear in StudentVUE or ParentVUE.
    • Summer fees will be billed weekly beginning May 1. Parents will receive an email notice that the fee has been posted. See the section below for more information about summer fees.
    • Around the last day of the school year in May, students who are enrolled will receive an enrollment confirmation with instructions to hang on a few more days and then detailed summer instructions will be emailed.
    • About five days before the summer session start date, students will receive enrollment confirmation and instructions to begin the online startup/orientation process.
    • On the summer session start date, all students will attend a required startup meeting (on Zoom) with their instructor to receive course information. PE students will attend an additional PE training (on Zoom). Dates will be emailed to enrolled students. PE students must be enrolled by the cut-off date in order to pick up their Heart Rate Monitor as scheduled.

    Out-Of-District Summer Students: We allow summer student enrollment from local districts that have a cooperating agreement with Olathe. We do not anticipate having to limit course enrollment to only Olathe students, but should that happen because of an exceedingly large enrollment, out-of-district students would be notified and their registration payment returned.

Summer Fee Payment

  • There is no fee for eAcademy enrollment during the fall or spring semester. There is a fee for summer eAcademy. The summer course fee is $200 per .50 credit course or $100 for .25 PE. The .25 Health course is $50. Full refunds will be issued for drops UNTIL the first day of the summer session. After that day there are no fee refunds. 

    eAcademy will send summer billing notices to parents by email, weekly after May 1. The summer fee will show in the student's fee account once we have posted it. Students who have registered with the district as qualifying for free/reduced fees will see half the summer course fee posted to their account. Payment can be made in installments or in full at the family's convenience.
