Summer Flight Program
The Summer Flight Program at Holmes County Consolidated School District provides a unique opportunity for students to engage in virtual online courses during the summer months. Summer Flight engages students in a comprehensive hands-on curriculum that integrates Science, Technology Engineering, Arts, and Math (STEAM) with a strong emphasis placed on Reading. Students are challenged with fun interactive activities to enhance academic skills and foster independence.
The strength of the Summer Flight Program has always been and remains the individualized education for each student. Students and teachers communicate through online virtual learning platforms utilizing such tools as secure email, audio, video, web conferencing, and live lessons. Students are provided with quality, standards-based courses taught by high quality teachers. All courses are aligned with Mississippi’s College and Career Readiness Standards (CCRS).
