All Summer School courses run from Monday June 18th- Friday July 20th. Wednesday, July 4th is the only holiday.


Official Schedules will be sent out via the emails you provided in the registration form by June 17th. 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.
