High School Academics: Courses for Credit

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.


High School students seeking to enroll in a for-credit summer course must obtain prior written approval from their curriculum coordinator and their school counselor.


Deadline to register: Friday, June 2, 2023


Classes follow Westport Public Schools curricula and are taught by WPS certified teachers. 


Unless noted otherwise, classes will be held in person at Staples High School.
