Registering for Summer Academy 2017

If you already know you want to attend this year’s SA program, register online beginning March 1st. If you haven’t decided on which classes yet, go check out the 2017 classes now!

Step 1: Receive Invitation

Receive invitation by one of three ways: (1) Summer Academy Brochure distributed at school, (2) Summer Academy Postcard distributed at school, (3) Summer Academy Invitation Email sent in February to students who have previously attended Summer Academy.

Regardless of the type of invitation received, online registration and payment is available for Summer Academy 2017. The online registration password can be found on the postcards and inside the front cover of the brochure. All passwords are the same. The online information is the same information found in a hardcopy brochure.

Step 2: Browse and Select Courses

Browse courses for Grades 2-11. First grade students select from First Grade Project classes.

Students are encouraged to list several courses that interest them on the application form; however, students will only be enrolled in one class. The grades listed for classes are the grades just completed. Students should expect to be registered in any course they list on the registration form based on course availability and the student’s order of preference. Listing only one choice does not ensure placement.

Step 3: Apply

Apply either online or by mail. If applying online, credit card payment is accepted. If applying by mail, send checks to Summer Academy, 4707 Hwy 61 #285, White Bear Lake, MN 55110.

Priority will be given to qualified students from the twelve sponsoring districts whose applications are submitted by March 30. The first 1,100 registrations received in March will be considered first-day registrations. Once 1,100 students are registered, registrations will be suspended. Class placements will be determined, and registration will reopen for any open classes. Daily registration updates will be given on our 2017 Classes Page.

Every attempt is made to register students in their first or second choice. If an application is received after the deadline, a child will be assigned the first of his/her choices that is still open for enrollment. Registrations will be accepted throughout the month of May, or until classes are full.

Note: District representatives will be sending First Grade Project materials and application forms to recommended students. Apply online or use the application given. Please do not complete a downloadable application.

Step 4: Confirmation

Look for a mailing confirming your child’s registration during the last week of April.

In the first mailing will be the course assignment, a questionnaire to complete and return to us, and other pertinent information.

Waiting List – Sometimes a student will want to be placed on a waiting list for a different class than the class assignment received. Parents may contact Summer Academy and request their child be placed on a waiting list for a particular course. At the same time, we strongly suggest that the student remain in the assigned course. Class spots fill quickly, and we do not want a student left out because he/she is on a waiting list. Please call Summer Academy to be placed on a waiting list, and we will notify you if/when an opening becomes available.
