For the fourth year in a row, Ravenscroft's student-led fundraising team for Crucial Catch has been recognized as the top fundraising school in the nation, exceeding their goal of $30,000 by more than $6,000, and once again winning the prestigious Pink Cleat Award.
After a successful launch in 2015, and an expanded set of courses in 2016, Ravenscroft is pleased to continue offering Summer School classes for high school students for a ninth year in 2023.

Enrollment is open to students in the relevant grades from Ravenscroft, other independent schools, and area public schools. Prospective students should take note of subject-specific course prerequisites.
Students who successfully complete a six week summer course (Geometry) will earn 1.0 Ravenscroft credit; those who successfully complete a three week summer course (American Government, Composition, Economics, Intro to Comp. Science I & II) will earn 0.5 Ravenscroft credit.
For Ravenscroft students, summer courses (1) will be included on the Ravenscroft transcript, (2) will be factored into the cumulative GPA, and (3) will count toward total graduation credits, assuming successful completion of the course. For the American Government, Composition, and Economics courses, successful completion will satisfy graduation requirements for these mandatory classes.
Students from other schools should check with their school’s registrar to ensure that they will receive academic credit for successful completion of Ravenscroft summer courses.
Course tuition is set by Ravenscroft School. For Summer 2023, tuition will be $1050.00 per student per term or $2100.00 for courses spanning both terms. Tuition remission for children of faculty/staff members will apply. Need-based financial aid will be determined by Ravenscroft based upon a family’s demonstrated need for the prior year.
Summer School Registration:
All registration for summer school courses will occur online through the Ravenscroft Summer Programs portal. If you have questions or need assistance with registration, please contact Director of Auxiliary Services and Summer Programs, Dan Ressner.
Per the Ravenscroft Upper School Parent/Student Handbook, students will be required to attend at least eighty percent of all class periods (twelve of fifteen class sessions per term) AND earn a passing final grade in order to receive Ravenscroft credit. However, given the compressed nature of the course offering, missing even a single session could jeopardize both a student’s performance in the class and his/her ability to earn academic credit for the course. Missed classes are the responsibility of the student. The teacher will be available for limited tutorial help but will not reteach material on an individual basis.
Given the intensive nature of summer courses, students should expect approximately two hours of homework per class meeting.
