2019 Summer Learning Programs
Summer school applications are available in the Guidance Office. When you have your form completed, please return to the tray in the Guidance Office. If you plan to take Health you are required to attend a 3 day session to be certified in CPR. These sessions are offered June 4-6 or June 25-27. If you are already certified you need to bring in a copy of your card to attach to the Summer School application. If you are unable to attend either of these sessions, you will not be able to earn a Health credit during the Summer. All pre-tests, post-tests and end of semester tests must be taken at South. All other instructional work may be done elsewhere. We strongly encourage students to attend Summer School at South so that they complete their course work in a timely manner.

Bloomington High School North and Bloomington High School South received First-of-Its-Kind College Success Award.
Great Schools awarded Bloomington High School North and Bloomington High School South as 2018 College Success Award-winning high schools. Of the 814 schools across the country, 45 were from Indiana, and only MCCSC had 2-schools receiving this distinction. The College Success Award is a first-of-its-kind honor celebrating schools that excel in ensuring students prepare for college, enroll in college and succeed once they get there.
Award-winning schools have a successful track record of graduating students who later enroll in two- or four-year college, are ready for college-level coursework, and persist on to their second year, according to available data from the state. College and career-ready graduates are critical to fueling the U.S. economy, as 65 percent of jobs will require a postsecondary degree by 2020.
MCCSC prepares students not only to enroll in college but also to succeed once they get there. “We are honored that North and South received this award. It is yet another example of our schools providing a world-class education preparing graduates for success in college, careers and life.” said MCCSC Superintendent Dr. Judith A. DeMuth.
Bloomington High School North and South students participate in engaging, empowering and high quality educational opportunities that ensure their success. We celebrate MCCSC students, parents, teachers and staff members for their dedication in pursuit of our students’ success.
