Summer Classes for High School Credit

General Information

Randolph-Macon Academy Summer School offers students the opportunity to earn high school credits in only four weeks. Students may take one full-day class (a core course never taken before, worth one full high school credit) or two half-day classes (an elective class worth one-half credit and/or a repeat class providing a full high school credit). 

Summer school courses include many core courses in math, English, social studies, science, Spanish and French. Course offerings are subject to demand.  There are more than 20 different classes to choose from.

Supervised study periods and evening and weekend activities round out the program.

Summer School Class Hours

Classes meet Monday-Friday, 8:00 a.m. to around 4:30 p.m., and Saturday, 8:00 a.m. to 11:10 a.m. Holding classes on Saturdays is what allows us to complete the program in only four weeks. Summer school course hours meet or exceed Virginia's state requirements.

Weekend and Evening Activities 

During the evening hours, students enjoy the use of our 135-acre campus, playing football, soccer, basketball, swimming, or simply enjoying a leisurely walk to enjoy the beauty of the campus and our mountain views.  Students also have the option at times to go into Front Royal for a movie night or game of bowling.

Summer school students may go home after classes end on Saturdays and return Sunday evening.  Those remaining on campus are required to participate in the weekend activities.  On Saturday afternoons, students participate in trips to major theme parks. Sunday activities include on-campus athletic activities and off-campus shopping. Day students are welcome and encouraged to participate in all activities. 

Bowling is just one of the evening activities in which summer school students an participate. On campus activities include basketball, swimming, ping pong (table tennis), and more.


All students are assigned a mentor who provides academic and social guidance and support throughout the summer school session. Each mentor meets regularly with a group of no more than ten students to encourage one-on-one rapport and group connectivity. The mentor’s mission is to help make every student’s summer experience positive and productive.
