Welcome to Kempsville High School, a fully accredited school and home to the Entrepreneurship and Business Academy.

AP & EBA Summer Support Tasks are now ready!

How do I access Summer Support Tasks (Summer Assignments)?

Teachers of Advanced Placement classes, EBA courses, and Math Analysis have organized a Schoology group to share summer support tasks with students. Using your student credentials, enter the join code: 92DD-F2TW-JPTTM to gain access. Tasks are located in the resources section of the group. If you are unable to access the group, contact your school counselor or an administrator for support.

Why the name change from Summer Assignments to Summer Support Tasks?

Over the last few years, we have transitioned toward a different approach to summer work for students. Our teachers have worked hard to create tasks that provide students with some of the supports they need to be successful in the fall. Each teacher is approaching their summer work as an opportunity to review previously learned content utilized in their course or to introduce students to success skills designed to support the transition into higher level courses. Students are expected to complete these tasks as teachers will be using the relevant skills and content when school starts. Summer Support Tasks help keep students sharp over the summer and ready to dive-in to their course when school begins.
