High School Summer Courses

We offer a variety of courses to prepare students for college and beyond. Our rigorous curriculum includes core courses in math, science, social studies, and English,courses for students seeking college-level challenges. Students have the flexibility to learn on their own schedule and at their own pace, while still receiving a top-notch education.

Students will acquire the language, reading, writing, and speaking/listening skills necessary for success in college, career, and beyond. Students will become critical readers and thinkers as they dive deeply into the texts presented throughout this course. Students will learn how to effectively research and integrate their findings, as well as cite their sources.

Prerequisite: Successful completion of Com Art 2

English 1 is an integrated curriculum. Each unit contains thematically related lessons in five domains: reading and the study of literature, reading informational text, writing, speaking and listening, and language study, which includes word knowledge and grammar skills.

In English 2, students learn how to express their thoughts and feelings in writing. Emphasis is placed on the specific traits of the 6-Traits of Writing: Ideas, Organization, Voice, Word Choice, Sentence Fluency, and Conventions. Students also review the 5-step writing process as they practice the skills of prewriting, drafting, revising, editing, and publishing. Each unit also includes instruction in the Greek roots of common English words.

Algebra 1 is the foundation of upper school math. The skills acquired in this course contain the basic knowledge needed for all future math courses. The content in this course is tied to real-world applications like sports, travel, business, and health. This course is designed to give students the basic skills and problem-solving strategies to work through many types of mathematical problems using critical thinking skills.

Geometry is everywhere, not just in pyramids. Engineers use geometry to build highways and bridges. Artists use geometry to create perspective in their paintings, and mapmakers help travelers find things using the points located on a geometric grid. Throughout this course, students travel a mathematical highway illuminated by spatial relationships, reasoning, connections, and problem-solving.

Prerequisite: Successful completion of Algebra 1

The high school chemistry course is a two-segment study of the foundations of chemistry, building on the concepts and scientific thinking laid in middle school science. Students use scientific inquiry and higher-order problem solving as they explore the composition, properties, and changes of matter and their applications through interactive simulations, engineering solutions, and virtual and hands-on experiences.

Prerequisite: Successful completion of Algebra 1

Algebra 2 allows students to learn while having fun. Interactive examples help guide students’ journey through customized feedback and praise. Mathematical concepts are applied to everyday occurrences such as earthquakes, stadium seating, and purchasing movie tickets. Students investigate the effects of an equation on its graph through the use of technology. Students have opportunities to work with their peers on specific lessons. 

Prerequisite: Successful completion of Algebra 1

Calculus provides students a foundation for progression into college-level Calculus. Within this course, students are led through the historical journey of the discovery and development of calculus.

Prerequisite: Successful completion of Algebra 2

English 4 will give you a front row seat to study the motives that have driven people’s actions for centuries. Along the way you will encounter epic heroes defying danger, tormented minds succumbing to the power of greed and ambition, enlightened thinkers striving for individual rights and freedoms, sensitive souls attempting to capture human emotion, and determined debaters taking a stand on critical issues. 

This course guides students through the study of living and non-living systems and how they interact with one another. Students explore the world they live in by posing questions and seeking answers through scientific inquiry

Prerequisite: Successful ccompletion of an 8th grade science course

From tiny atoms to galaxies with millions of stars, the universallaws of physics are explained through real-world examples. Using laboratory activities, simulations, images, and interactive elements, students follow in the footsteps of some of the world’s greatest thinkers.

Prerequisite: Successful completion of Geometry
