Summer Learning Program

The Ridgefield Summer Learning Program is a summer program that provides secondary level students with academic improvement and enrichment courses in various subjects. The Summer Learning Program enables students the opportunity to make up credit and successfully complete subjects they have failed during the regular school year. Students may also enroll in a make-up course to raise grades in order to qualify for continuation in a subject area. Enrichment courses offered for advancement are open to qualified students.

Our Summer Learning Program information is also available on our Home page under "Quick Links" in the "Parents" tab. Please contact us if you have any additional questions.

Staggered Testing/Final Exam Schedule

To prevent students from having a large number of tests at one time prior to the end of the semester, subject areas administer tests according to the schedule below. When a dropped class falls on a subject’s assigned testing day, the test will take place on the next day.

The final exam schedule is organized by course section number, not by class period. Please refer to the course section numbers to determine when each exam will take place. The first number in the last three digits of the course number is the ​section number​, and this will determine the exam time.
