Join the Summer Calculus database

Enrollment Process
To enroll in the Summer Calculus classes students must submit a paper application to their counselor AND join the Summer Calculus database

Dates and Times of Classes
Summer Calculus begins on Monday, June 12 and ends on Friday, July 7th.  Classes are everyday from 8 am to 12 noon.  Tuesday, July 4th is a holiday.

Eligibility
Summer Calculus classes are for M-A students who earn an “A” or “B” in Pre-Calculus.

Purpose of the Summer Program
The summer program covers the Fall Semester of AP Calculus AB.  Students who successfully complete the summer course with a “B” or higher will then be eligible to enroll in AP Calculus BC in the fall semester.  Sophomores do not need to participate in the summer program if they instead take AP Calculus AB as a junior and they then can enroll in AP Calculus as a Senior.

The Lottery
M-A has never had the need for a lottery in the past but in case we have more classes than instructors we will hold a lottery.  The lottery will work as follows:

1. All “A” students in Pre-Calculus will be accepted before “B” students in Pre-Calculus are enrolled. If we have more “A” students than we can enroll, we will have a lottery among “A” students.
2. If we still room after all “A” students are enrolled, we will have a lottery for the remaining spots for the “B” students.

The Teachers
Mr. Whitnah and Mr. Wong will be the summer school calculus teachers for 2017.

Summer Calculus Class Funding
The expenses of the classes are paid for by parent donations and partially by the Foundation for the Future as necessary.  The recommended donation is $300 or more but families can donate whatever is reasonable depending on their financial situation.  Students can enroll for free if parents are unable to donate.  Donations will be asked for in the late spring, after enrollments have been confirmed.
