FAQ's - Frequently Asked Questions - De Anza College Academy Summer Classes


What is the De Anza College Academy Summer Classes Program and where does it take place?
The "De Anza College Academy" is a fee-based enrichment program for kids and teens. Our exceptional instructors come from a variety of educational institutions across the Bay Area, including universities, colleges, public and private high schools and K-8 districts. All of our credentialed instructors possess expertise and passion for their specific instructional area and substantial experience teaching and working with young students. Our program offers enjoyable hands-on and project based learning.

This program is for students who are entering first to twelfth grade. Students are not assigned letter grades or school credit. Supplemental homework is assigned in some of the middle school classes. Students’ English speaking, reading and writing skills need to be at grade level in order to fully benefit from our program.

Grades 1-9: If you want your student to remain on the school site for more than one class period, you should enroll her or him in classes that are held consecutively (without a gap between them). Students should be picked up immediately after their last class of the day.
 
Grades 9-12: Students may select classes in any combination. Please be advised that students will be supervised during class time only. 
 
Students may register for one to seven classes per day (for selected school sites), and may register for one or more of our grade-level-appropriate, one-week specialty camps.
