Summer School

Illinois Virtual School (IVS) is the perfect way to keep your students on track during the summer months. Whether students want to take enrichment courses, required core courses to make room in their high school schedule or recover credit to stay on track for graduation, IVS is your Summer School destination!

Illinois Virtual School's summer session provides two different calendar options for students; one that begins on May 5 and the other on June 2.

Whether traveling, working, attending a camp, competing in sports, etc.; we understand how busy students are over the summer. For this reason, our June summer term offers a rolling start date. What does this mean? Students can start their course as early as June 2. However, for those who prefer to start later or for those who decide to register unexpectedly, you may enroll up until June 16. Regardless of when a student begins in May or June, all students have until August 4 to complete their coursework. Please keep in mind the following:

  • The summer learning environment is condensed and fast-paced. If you are trying to complete a yearlong course over the summer, we strongly encourage you to start your course on June 2. This will allow you adequate time to successfully learn the concepts from both the semester one and semester two course.
