LIVINGSTON, NJ – Livingston Public School (LPS) students looking to enhance their educational experience—either by catching up on the past school year’s coursework or getting a head start on that of the one to come—have a wide selection of classes to choose from through the district’s upcoming Summer Academy program.

Now in its second year, the Summer Academy will offer remedial classes for those students who have taken a variety of math, science, history, English, social studies and health classes, but have received insufficient credit in those classes.  The program will also continue to offer Advanced Placement (AP) and honors-inspired bridge courses in the sciences and mathematics to students looking to get a leg-up on the coursework they’ll be taking in the fall. 

New to Summer Academy this year are the enrichment course offerings available to third-graders through high schoolers, designed for those students curious about areas of study they may not normally be exposed to during the academic year—areas such as computer coding, robotics, engineering, art principles, photography, college essay writing, personal management and organization, information literacy/research and more.

Although homework is a component of the remedial program, the bridge and enrichment programs are more activities-centered.

In addition to expanding the programming, Superintendent of Schools Christina Steffner announced at this week’s Livingston Board of Education (LBOE) meeting that the district is “using an online registration and payment system this year.” She said is expected that the new system will help facilitate a more seamless registration process.

Enrollment is open to LPS students as well as students from neighboring school districts. 

“We’ve already gotten calls from other districts which sent students last year and were very satisfied,” said Patricia Boland, assistant superintendent of Curriculum & Instruction. “So we’re anticipating additional enrollment, though we always reserve the right to refuse outside participants once we review our numbers towards the very end but, for the most part, we accept anyone that’s interested.”

She said this is good news for undersubscribed courses as insufficient enrollment may result in the cancellation of certain classes.

Remedial program classes will be held from June 26 through July 27, Monday to Friday, for the first week and Monday to Thursday, for weeks two through five with two sessions offered daily from 8:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. and 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.

Bridge program classes will run from July 10 through July 13 or August 21 through August 24, Monday to Thursday, 8:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m.

Enrichment program classes will be held from July 10 through July 13 or July 10 through July 20, Monday to Thursday from 8:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. 

Class cost is $300 per class for in-district students and $350 per class for out-of-district students, with the exception of those enrichment classes that run for two weeks and have a cost of $400 for in-district and $450 for out-of-district students.  All classes will be held at Livingston High School.
