Frequently Asked Questions

What curriculum is used during Summer School?
  • The Summer school option we are offering at FWA is to use the online software program called Ignitia.
  • This program is a fully-accredited program of FWA, (see registrar for details.)
What is the attendance policy?

Our online curriculum is available 24/7.  Although students can do as much extra work from home as they choose, they are required to work in the FWA Learning Lab a minimum of 15 hours per week (20 hours is strongly recommended). The Learning Lab is open Monday to Thursday from 9:00 am – 1:30 pm and Friday from 8:00 am to 12:00 pm. Attendance is taken and lab hours are logged daily.  Two short breaks will be given. Students with insufficient lab hours risk being dropped from the course.  All quizzes and tests will remain “locked” and must be taken at school, during lab hours.

Where is Summer School held?
  • Class meets in the FWA Learning Lab, Room 200. Students must bring their laptop to the Learning lab where wifi is available.
  • Away from school, work can be done wherever Internet access is available. It is understood that working from home, as well as coming into the lab, will be necessary to complete the program in the time allowed.
What are the Learning Lab Hours?
  • Monday – Thursday, 9:00 am to 1:30 pm
  • Friday, 8:00 am to 12:00 pm
How do I receive credit?

  • To receive credit for the course (either one-semester or both semesters), the student must complete the lessons assigned, and maintain a passing grade of 70 or higher. This is an independently-paced program, so the student can work as fast as they choose
  • Credit is given based on completing the work assigned with an overall grade of 70 or above.  A teacher will be in the lab during designated hours to help the student use the program and facilitate the course.  Students can ask questions, ask for examples not given in the program, have their writing proofread, etc. Students who can work “mostly” independently and are able to stay on task to do the lessons tend to do well.
  • Summer School students will keep a spiral notebook and a folder (one set for each subject), to keep their notes and practice work organized.  It is possible that the assistance of a tutor may be necessary based upon the student’s learning needs (particularly with math and science courses or ESL), and if you decide to work with a tutor, that notebook will be useful going back and forth between the program and the tutor.
  • Science courses have virtual labs, interactive labs, and other activities to give students the visual and hands-on learning they would receive in a regular classroom setting.
What is the dress code in Summer School?
  • Dress for Summer school does not need to be the FWA uniform. Jeans, pants, or shorts and full-sleeve t-shirts are fine. However, shorts need to be the acceptable length.  No athletic shorts, tank tops, spaghetti tops, or swimwear is allowed.
How do I enroll and pay?
  • Payment options include a credit card already on file with FWA, or our business manager, Mrs. Gough, can bill you directly.
