Welcome to Crespi Summer School!

June 20 - July 29

Welcome to Crespi Summer School! Courses at Crespi Carmelite High School's Summer School are taught by experts who embrace the best of twenty-first century, brain-based education. All Summer School courses reflect the Catholic and Carmelite traditions of Crespi, and the student experience is designed to be both edifying and enjoyable.

Most of our Summer School courses are intended for remediation for high school students. Our 6-week Summer School session is divided into Session A (for Fall semester courses) and Session B (for Spring semester courses).

Some courses, such as Honors PreCalculus and Film Studies, can be taken to fulfill prerequisites or high school graduation requirements. For example, Crespi students who recently completed Algebra 2 or Honors Algebra 2/Trig may take Honors PreCalculus in the Summer to qualify for AP Calculus AB in the Fall.

For Crespi's incoming freshmen, we offer two courses designed to help make the transition from eighth grade to high school. Language Arts & the Crespi Man functions as an extended orientation to Crespi and develops the reading, writing, and verbal skills necessary for success at a college-preparatory high school. Integrated Math builds on lessons from seventh and eighth grade math classes to prepare students for the challenges of high school Algebra 1.

  • Nondiscrimination Policy

    Crespi Carmelite High School does not discriminate against any applicant because of race, religion, or national origin, in conformity with Christian charity and the Civil Rights Act of 1964, Title IX Regulations of the Education Amendments of 1972 and the public Law 92-318.

    Crespi Carmelite High School admits students of any race, color, national and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school. It does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national and ethnic origin in administration of its educational policies, admissions policies, scholarship and loan programs, and athletic and other school-administered programs.
    Understanding the high school admissions process can sometimes be difficult. At Crespi, we consider many facets of the student’s record.
    • All applicants must complete an application and pay the processing fee to be considered for admissions to Crespi Carmelite High School. The application and processing fee automatically registers freshman applicants to take the Entrance Examination.
    • The applicant will have his 8th grade Math and English teachers, as well as his current Principal or counselor, fill out the evaluation forms. The completed forms should be faxed or mailed directly to Crespi from the student’s school. Each applicant has the option of sending additional evaluation forms.
    • Previous three years of transcripts and testing information must be received prior to an interview.
    • Each candidate will be interviewed by a member of the staff in order to ascertain the student’s desire to attend Crespi Carmelite High School.
    All facets of the admissions process are considered equally for entrance into Crespi Carmelite High School. Letters announcing the Admissions Committee’s decision will be mailed.

  • Students with Learning Disabilities

    Crespi is a college preparatory school and does not have a learning disability program. As such, Crespi does not modify its curriculum. However, for students whose disabilities do not preclude their completion of Crespi’s course of studies, the following accommodations may be made:
    • Students with a diagnosed IEP must provide the Counseling Department with documentation of the student’s learning disabilities. These reports must come from a licensed educational specialist and will be kept on file by the counselor.
    • Information on the student’s learning disability and recommendations will be provided to his teachers. No special treatment by the teacher can be expected.
    • If accepted, the student agrees, without exception, to take regular classes and fulfill all Crespi graduation requirements.
    • It is strongly recommended that the student work with an educational/learning therapist.
    • Students meeting learning disability criteria may request assistance from the Counseling Department to gain extended-time on College Board exams (SAT, ACT). Crespi Carmelite High School cannot guarantee such accommodations, but we will support the application process.
    • Generally, the typical extended-time accommodation of 50% additional time is built into the testing period: there are no additional extended-time accommodations for assessments.
    • Students may be permitted to sit in the front of the classroom or other locations as necessary per the recommendations in an IEP.
    • Students may utilize a laptop or other mobile device to take notes in class, or to type in-class assignments.
    • Other accommodations may be considered with the approval of the Vice Principal of Academics.
