    About our Program

    Portland Summer Scholars is a high school credit recovery program for students who need to retake a course required for graduation. The pace of our program is somewhat intense in nature due to the condensed time frame we operate in. While most semester courses meet over the span of 18 weeks, our Summer Scholars classes meet for 3 hours per day for 13 days straight. Students will earn .5 credit for each class they successfully complete.
