Summer Academy

In keeping with the District’s mission to challenge and support every student, every step of the way, the Upper Arlington Board of Education is committed to providing a superior comprehensive summer school program for students.  By extending the school year, Summer Academy allows a large number of students to enrich, reinforce, or receive remediation in a variety of subjects and thus continue their education in a less traditional way.

Summer Academy 2021

For the summer of 2021, some classes will be in-person, others will be all online, while a few are a blend of the two. If the district or the State of Ohio restrict in-person learning due to COVID-19, Summer Academy will return to 100% online learning. At this point, we hope to follow the schedules laid out in the course descriptions. Any changes to our operational model will be publicized on this webpage.

Registration for Summer 2021

Online registration will again be available through a partnership with the City of Upper Arlington at Online registration opens at 8 a.m. March 10, 2021.

Enrollment in all classes is limited and will be accepted in the order received. Please register according to the student’s upcoming grade level in August 2021. Registration will close 3 days before the start of the class.

Students will not be notified of acceptance in a course. You will only be notified if the class is changed, full, or cancelled. Any classes that do not have a minimum of 6 students enrolled may be cancelled. Class cancellations will be communicated as soon as possible. 

A service fee of $20 will be charged for all refunds except when a class is cancelled. Class cancellations due to low enrollment will be communicated as soon as possible, and fees for those classes will be refunded in full.

All refund requests must be emailed to [email protected]. There will be no refunding of fees after the first day of scheduled classes.


Parents/guardians of students who need tuition assistance due to financial hardship must complete Form SAFA. This paperwork is available by emailing the director at the email address below and must be completed prior to scheduling the Summer Academy class(es).
