    Summer MPOA vs summer camps/vacations

    I am interested in having my son take the Ovid class this summer, but he is also wanting to do a one week camp at a college this summer and a one week Catholic retreat this summer. Add to that the fact that our family usually takes a few days of a week to go on a mini-vacation which has to be timed when my husband can clear a few days of his busy work schedule. Is it possible to do both? How disruptive would it be to miss 2-3 of the 8 Ovid classes if he can watch the recorded classes? I am not even sure if Ovid would go on his transcript- is it even a 1/2 credit of work? If not, I guess it really does not matter if he misses since it would be totally supplemental unless it disrupts the rest of the class to have a student miss. Must we choose between a summer class and summer camps or can we do both?

    Thank you very much for the question. While not ideal this should be fine. This happens every summer with students missing some of the class. I will consult with Mrs. Timmis on the credit recommendation. You can always personally email me at [email protected] as well.
