Get Ahead Summer Classes
Get Ahead Summer School is designed to give students the opportunity to take a year-long class during the summer. Get Ahead courses are offered at the college preparatory level and are free of charge. These courses are not designed for remediation. As such, attendance is critical to student success. Each period of the summer school day represents one semester of a year-long class. Students must attend both periods, for the duration of summer school in order to earn 10 credits.
Due to a high interest, limited space, and programmatic requirements we will utilize a lottery system for any remaining Get Ahead spaces. In order to be enrolled, a student must submit a completed “Get Ahead” Application form no later than Friday, March 13, 2020 at 4PM to your counselor/ advisor or to E109 at Samohi. Late applications will be added to the bottom of the wait list, in the order in which they are received. Late applications must be submitted to the H House office, E109. There are no guarantees of course offerings or enrollment.
Eligible students will be notified of Get Ahead acceptance by email at end of Friday, March 27, 2020. Please be sure to update email in Illuminate by contacting your student’s House/School Office. Students not selected will be placed on a waiting list and will be notified as spaces become available.
In years past, we have offered Get Ahead courses in:
• Biology • Visual Arts • Geometry • World History • US History
