Westport Continuing Education works closely with the teachers and administration to offer credit courses over the summer to regional high school students at Staples High School. Each 1-credit class offers the same material as a full-year class, condensed into a 6-week program. Students also get the benefit of smaller class sizes and gain additional skills and experience for help with a college or career choice in the future. Summer courses allow students to satisfy credit requirements in order to free up their schedule during the school year for other courses. Enrollment in follow-up courses at Staples during the school year is contingent upon; successful completion of the summer school course, teacher recommendation, AND seat availability in the desired course, which is not guaranteed. Please view the Program of Studies for course info.

Registration Information:

Registration must be done in person at the Westport Continuing Education main office at Staples High School, #1040. There is no online registration for credit courses. Deadline to register: Friday, June 12 View the flyer here.

Register early! Westport Continuing Education determines if a class runs based on enrollment. A minimum number of students is required in order for the class to run. 

Students must have prior written approval from their school counselor and curriculum coordinator / department head. 

Perfect attendance and punctuality are expected. 

Final report cards will be mailed to the student’s home and their guidance department. 

Duplicate reports may be forwarded to other schools at the request of parents and/or student. 

No refunds or credits will be given for withdrawals from high school academic credit courses.

If Westport Continuing Education cancels a class for any reason, the parent/guardian is notified by email and the tuition will be refunded.
