Attendance Policy

Central Catholic Summer Term offers students the opportunity to attend courses during summer vacation:.

We realize that our schedule of courses might conflict with previous arrangements and family commitments.

To allow for these situations, Central Catholic Summer Term permits students to be absent under the following conditions:

  • All anticipated absences beyond one day must be approved by the director of Summer Term prior to the beginning of Summer Term. Students agree to make up all missed work and at least a portion of all missed class time. In most situations, students will make up all missed class time by arriving early or staying later. Students will be in direct contact with instructors via email as needed to fulfill these requirements.
  • The Summer Term Office must receive in writing a letter from a parent or guardian with the dates of such absences no later than 1:00 pm on June 26. Extended absences not approved will result in loss of class credit, forfeiture of all fees, and withdrawal from the program.
  • All unanticipated absences must be accompanied by a phone call to the school by a parent or guardian no later than 8:00 am on the day of the absence. Upon a student’s return the following day, the student must have a note signed by a parent or guardian explaining the absence.
  • Any unexcused absence will lead to a loss of credit, forfeiture of all fees, and withdrawal from the program.
