Summer School 2020
Ash Grove High School is offering two sessions for the 2020 Summer School, July 6-17 and July 20-31. Classes will meet Monday through Friday from 8:00am to 2:30pm. Bus transportation will be available to and from the Bois D'Arc and Lawrence County (Lawrenceburg) areas. Contact your school secretary for pick up/drop off time details. High school students may earn 0.5 credit per session, and students who just completed their 8th grade year may enroll in summer school classes as a 9th grader and receive high school credit. No credit is issued to any student taking the Jr. High Core Skills class. Students are allowed only one absence per session of summer school.
The school will serve a free breakfast and free lunch every day for every child. We encourage all children to take advantage of this free program. Breakfast will be served 7:30am - 8:00am, and lunch will be served to junior high and high school students from 11:40am-12:10pm. Meals for all grades will be served in the elementary cafeteria.

Launch and MOSI Online Summer School
If a student is not taking any summer school courses at Ash Grove High School, they may want to take advantage of online summer school options. Launch and Missouri Online Summer Institute (MOSI) are online summer school options for students who would like to work at home to complete 1 or 2 sessions of four-week online courses taught by state-certified teachers. If the student passes the course(s) satisfactorily, high school students will be able to earn up to one full high school credit. There are also junior high enrichment courses for incoming 7th and 8th grade students, but no high school credit will be earned. These programs are free for Missouri junior high and high school students, and there are a good amount of credit recovery and enrichment courses available from which to choose. The first session opens May 22 and registration is available now. The second session begins around mid-June and ends July 20.
