Dear Summer School Student,

We welcome you to Summer School at Mater Dei High School. We look forward to a great Summer!

Please see the items below for important information:

All Summer School courses run from Monday June 17th- Friday July 19th. Thursday July 4th and Friday July 5th are Summer School Holidays. (July 5th was added as a holiday as of 5/17/19)


Official Schedules will be sent out via the emails you provided in the registration form by Sunday, June 16th. If you requested specific periods for Incoming Freshmen HSP courses or Credit Recovery courses, we have either been able to grant these requests while scheduling or have been reaching out. For example, if you requested an 8:00 start time, you can plan on an 8:00 start time- if we cannot grant that request, we will let you know as soon as we know. We make every effort to accommodate scheduling requests. Credit Advancement schedules are already set and those courses are held at the posted times. Please review the schedule for Credit Advancement courses HERE. If you signed up for Geometry for Advancement, both Option 1 and 2 will run and you can double check your selection on the receipt that was emailed to the person who paid for the course.
