Online Course Opportunities for Middle and High School
The Piedmont School will be offering a unique online course opportunity for these grade levels during the summer. This opportunity is open not just for TPS students, but for any students in these grades.
The courses are provided by FuelEd and TPS is offering a unique opportunity in that we will provide an on campus mentor for each student who they can meet with once a week to ask questions, have a mentor help them stay organized and on pace, and to help guide the students through the online course process. The schedules are flexible and run from June 20th-August 1st. Students complete all work at home on desktops or laptops (software requirements: Chrome browser, Microsoft Office/Word, and reliable internet).
Check out our flyers below for more information. You can also find this information on the Academics page of our website.
Middle School (rising 7th-8th graders)
Rising 7th-8th graders are invited to choose one of four elective courses to complete over the summer as an enrichment opportunity and a great way to introduce themselves to an online course format (online courses will inevitably be a part of their schooling career at some point, so this is a great introduction).
High School (rising 10th-12th graders)
Rising 10th-12th graders are invited to choose one course from a list of possibilities for which they will receive an elective high school transcript credit.
