  • Attendance Policy – WANIC summer programs are fast-paced so students can earn a high school semester of credit in only 13 days. There is insufficient time for a student to address missed course content if absent more than one day. If a student is too sick for school for more than 24 hours, such that they will miss more than one day  of school, they will be offered a ‘hardship withdrawal’ and to be dropped from the class. A hardship withdrawal (“W”) will not negatively affect their GPA. Visit for WANIC policies regarding students with symptoms.
  • WANIC Summer Semester does not have an online option.
