SEOUL — School officials are offering students across the Pacific a chance to continue learning this summer.

Defense Department school officials announced a four-week, half-day summer school program for kindergartners through eighth- graders and an online program for ninth- through 12th graders.

The program will be offered at 12 schools across the Pacific in July. Officials said they haven’t decided which schools will offer the classes.

The courses are not remedial, officials stressed, and are meant to support and reinforce learning though challenging lessons.

The program for the younger students, offered to kids in a space-required enrollment status, will feature a curriculum that emphasizes math and language arts, according to officials.

And a limited number of high school students can earn credit toward graduation in the online program. Participants can select only one of the following courses: science, math, English language and social studies.

Students and parents must sign a letter of understanding that will define the student’s responsibility to complete coursework.

Registration forms and additional information, including a list of locations, will be offered prior to summer break. Contact your school for more information.
