Students Get Paid to Attend Summer School, But See Other Rewards

At Hillcrest High, students earn $5 a day for attendance and participation for Summer school participation. Students who are on time and present each of the 26 days are also eligible for a $300 end-of-program cash award. Chris Allen readily admits he was in it for the money. But after completing Hillcrest High School’s summer academy, he realized a much greater payoff: a confident start to high school. After completing the program during the summer of 2016, Chris entered high school as “a kid that’s willing to raise his hand and answer the questions because I actually know the answer.” He finished his freshman year with a high grade point average, even earning a 4.0 GPA the third quarter.
