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 6.  
  • 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 June through August to help ensure success in your online course.  
  • Mrs. Eggers will be at Draughn High School Monday-Thursday, June 19 - August 11, excluding the week of July 4
  • There is a $350 administrative fee per course (out-of-county is $450).  The administrative fee, 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.​
