E-Learning Summer Enrichment

  • The Summer Enrichment program offered by Union County Public Schools is a rigorous program that operates at an accelerated pace. You must have daily internet access to fully participate in this program. If you cannot meet this requirement, please plan to take the virtual course during the regular school year. Students must be prepared to spend three hours per day on coursework, totaling at least fifteen hours per week. Each UCVirtual course lesson is designed to fill a ninety minute block; therefore during the summer, students are expected to complete two lessons per day. NCVPS course structures varies by topic but students must also work at an accelerated pace.
