APEX Summer Recovery
Students who have failed one or more courses may opt to complete online summer learning to recover credit for a failing grade. Students who successfully complete all assigned work with a 70% content mastery will receive a replacement grade of 59.5% for the completed marking period.
All quizzes may be taken at home but all tests must be completed at school (proctored). School APEX hours are Mon-Thurs from June 15th-Aug 1st. The APEX lab is closed on June 21, 22, 23, and July 5.
If you are interested in taking advantage of earning a failed credit, complete the application and submit it to your guidance counselor or our main office.

A Message From The Principal
As principal of Chopticon High School, I have the honor of working with a dedicated faculty and staff who provide a world class education for the students of St. Mary’s County. With millions of dollars earned in scholarship money each school year, our alumni are attending some of the top colleges and universities in the nation. In fact, three of our graduates are currently attending United States Military Academies. At Chopticon, we believe that academic rigor is the key to success. As a result, twenty-one different Advanced Placement courses are offered to our students. Those students who take five or more AP classes during their high school experience are designated “AP Stars” and receive special recognition upon graduating. Being a Chopticon Brave means setting your goals high and reaching for the stars. Our intention is to make each student’s dream come true. With self-discipline and hard work on the part of the students, the dedication of our faculty and staff, and the support of our parents and community, this can happen.
Mr. Garth E. Bowling, Jr.
