Upon recommendation and approval of the Principal, a student may be permitted to earn three credits by correspondence or summer school, provided that no more than two credits or units are earned in one calendar year. Permission to take the correspondence/summer school work will be granted only for remediation purposes or when a course is not offered at Mt. Carmel School. Institutions from which the student receives this instruction must be recognized by the State Board of Education and accredited by a regional accreditation agency.
Students taking more than 7 credits per year or any summer school credits will be charged $300 per credit hour for the extra credits. This applies both to courses taken for the first time and remediation credits taken for failed courses. Also, if the course is not covered by Mt. Carmel School Faculty and needs to be purchased, the student is required to pay for the course as well.
