Are your services free?

Yes! All of our courses are completely free. It is our priority that all students have equitable access to quality education, and we want to make our program more accessible to underserved and low-income kids. SHS refuses to put a price on any learning opportunity.

How many courses can I take?

Students are welcome to take as many classes as they would like. If there is a particular subject that they want to learn more about and improve in, they’re free to take only that one subject. We would, however, encourage participation in all classes for the best experience and peer bonding!

How long is this program?

Our courses run for 6 weeks, from Monday, July 6th, to Friday, August 14th. There is, however, only one class per day: Fun and Games occurs every Monday, for example, and only on Mondays, while STEM takes place every Wednesday, and only on Wednesdays. Each class is an hour long. You are free to join and leave any time during the summer.

Who is eligible to join?

Any current middle-schooler, grades 6-8, is able to sign up for these courses. That includes rising freshmen, but does not include rising 6th graders.

What times are the courses?

Our courses are from 5-6 p.m. every Monday through Friday.

What happens if I miss class?

Don't worry! After each lesson, all of the materials will be posted online.
