Please visit this link to learn more information. As you can see at this link, full tuition is 100 dollars and it is a Pass/Fail course. This is a completely independent course that requires students to be highly motivated. It is currently available for Summer 2014 as well as the 2014-15 school year. Details of course requirements for the summer are available here. If your student would like to enroll in this course for the summer, please complete a registration form (found here) and have them follow up with their counselor for required signatures.
