Guidelines and Procedures:

  • You must be a rising Freshman, rising Sophomore, rising Junior, or rising Senior.
  • You must complete the online registration process​ by JUNE 7.  
  • The sooner you submit your application, the better chance you have to get into the particular course(s) that you wish to take.
  • You must check-in with the summer e-Learning Advisor (ELA), Mrs. Stephanie Eggers, on or before your course start date to confirm your course log-in information.
  • You must check-in with Mrs. Eggers on a weekly basis through August 5 to help ensure success in your online course.  Mrs. Eggers will be at Patton High School Monday-Thursday, June 13 - August 5, excluding the week of July 4. 
  • Tuition is $350 per course (out-of-county student tuition is $450).  Tuition, along with the Online Learning Application and Parent Student Contract, must be submitted to the guidance counselor before you can be registered for the course. Make checks payable to BCPS.
  • No more than two courses may be taken during the summer session. 
  • If the course you want to take requires a textbook that we have on-hand, we will provide you with a textbook. If not, you will need to purchase the textbook for the course. 
  • It is required that you have Internet access at home or another location in order to take an online course.
  • It is highly recommended that if you have not had an online course, Success 101 would be a great elective course for you to begin your online adventure.
  • You will earn high school credit and this credit will count in GPA and rank.
  • Online providers estimate that each course requires a commitment of 4 (four) hours per day, five days a week.

NOTE:  Middle school students (including rising ninth graders) may take Success 101, Science, Social Studies, Math, and Foreign Language courses only.​
