The ThunderRidge World Language Department is offering a remedial summer Spanish course to Spanish 1 & 2 students.  This course is designed to help the student refine their skills and build a strong foundation of the Spanish language.  This course is not designed for a student who has never taken Spanish.

If your student is not successful in Spanish and/or does not pass their proficiency tests with a 75% or better, this course will offer the opportunity to improve their grade and move on to the next level in Spanish.


There would need to be 15 students for the course to run on campus during session one of summer school.  Spanish will not be offered online in order to meet proficiencies and so if the course does not get enough registrations, student will need to “retake the course the following academic year

  • English I (1st or 2nd semester)*                                                                                       

*Classes require enrollment of 20 students.  If less than 20 students enroll, students will be given a choice of enrolling for Online Independent coursework with the exception of math. Every effort will be made to honor course requests.

B.  Courses for Independent Online Courses - Math not offered

    Session I: June 1 - June 22

    Session II: June 27 - July 20

These self-paced online classes provide students with off-site learning opportunities to accommodate those for whom the regular summer school schedule is not an option. We recommend this option for disciplined learners as it is the student’s responsibility to stay on pace through the assigned curriculum. While online coursework is available 24 hours a day, work must be completed within the time-frame of the session in which that student enrolls in order to gain credit. Students are expected to maintain regular contact with their adviser regarding their progress.
