An Independent School • Grades 5-12

High School Academic Courses

Courses are designed for students from any school, entering grades 9 – 12.

Why spend the summer in class? Students value the ability to delve deeply into one content area without other demands on their schedule. For-credit classes help students advance in a subject area or fulfill a graduation requirement in order to free up space in their school-year schedule. And rising juniors and seniors can get a jump on the college application process with classes for the SAT, ACT, and college essay-writing.

Prerequisites are required for some for-credit courses.

Financial aid is available. The financial aid application is included as an option in our online registration process.
