2021 SUMMER ENRICHMENT PROGRAM JUNE 7 – JULY 1

All 4 Weeks: Monday - Thursday 
 
A TIME TO SUCCEED! 
The Summer Enrichment Program at Bishop Lynch is designed for students who have been identified by the ISEE test results and educational record to have a need for additional preparation before entering high school-level Math and/or English. The curriculum is focused on identifying problem areas that need to be addressed. If your child has a weaker ability in Math and/or English skills, the Admissions Committee will require that your student successfully complete the Summer Enrichment Program, with an average of at least 75%, in order to be admitted to the freshman class. Summer Enrichment is used as a tool to aid in placement for courses in the fall. 
 
All BL COVID-19 health and safety protocols (including masking) will be followed. For classes that meet in-person, in-person learning is the only option. Blended synchronous learning will not be offered. 

CLASS SCHEDULE:
(All classes will be held in person.)
The Summer Enrichment Program offers classes in English and Math. Each class is 2.5 hours in length. Session I begins at 7:30 AM and Session II begins at 10:30 AM. The classes are taught by Bishop Lynch faculty members. Students are only allowed ONE absence during the duration of the program. 
 
TUITION: 
Tuition for Summer Enrichment is $200 for one course and $300 for both. If the student is not required to take both courses, he/she may enroll voluntarily, provided that space is available. Students will not be allowed to register for Summer Enrichment until they have completed the online registration for the 2021-2022 school year. Summer Enrichment registration must be completed online and will be available beginning March 24, 2021. The registration deadline is May 1, 2021. 

ADMISSIONS DECISIONS: 
At the end of the Summer Enrichment Program, the Admissions Committee will meet with the teachers and administrators involved in the program to assess each student’s progress. Based on the student’s performance, one of the following decisions will be made: 
  1. The applicant was very successful, maintaining an average of 90% or better for the entire course of the program. That student may be recommended for regular level classes. 
  2. The applicant continues to need the support of a slower pace and would benefit from placement in essentials level Math and/or English.
  3. The applicant has not shown that he/she has the ability, effort and/or citizenship needed to succeed at Bishop Lynch and will not be offered admission.

DRIVER’S EDUCATION

Driver’s Education is offered during the Summer at Bishop Lynch. The Summer Session is June 2-23 with classroom instruction for 2 hours a day for 3 weeks. The classroom phase consists of 32 hours, with an additional 14 hours of Behind the Wheel beginning after the classroom phase is over. In addition, there will be one day that instruction will take place on Saturday. This date will be determined once classroom instruction has begun.

The driving schedule will be scheduled during the class. The class is full due to restrictions of the State. Contact Andy Zihlman at andy.zihlman@bishoplynch.org  for any questions.

Please note that the BL Driver Ed program is following all state and local guidelines, including the Texas Department of Licensing & Regulation and the Diocese of Dallas, before coming on campus. This will be a live classroom and drive time as we do it in conjunction with each other. 

The total cost for the course is $500.00.

Behind the Wheel is offered during the Summer Break following the completion of the classroom phase. Students will sign up for Behind the Wheel drive times during the classroom phase. By state law, attendance is mandatory in order to receive a driver’s license. No more than two absences are allowed, and these absences must be made up. An additional 20 hours of drive time must be completed with a parent before the final certificate is issued. The form will be given the first day of class with instructions for the student and parent. If a student does not show up for their scheduled driving time, a $25 fine will be assessed. Please keep your assigned time.

Students will need a Texas Department of Public Safety Driver’s Handbook, which can be picked up at any DPS headquarters.
