All student took core classes to boost their skills in Math, Science, English, History (Juniors only) and Careers (Seniors only).  Core classes were Monday through Friday from 8:30am to 12:00pm (except Wednesdays).

Juniors and first-year Seniors took "Enrichment" classes in the afternoon, including Theatre, Psychology, Pre-Med (M/W/F) and Art, Spanish, and Fitness (T/Th).

Second-year Seniors had the opportunity each afternoon to earn money doing job shadowing with local businesses.  Students learned about careers in physical therapy, veterinary science, business, information technology, education, nursing, among others.

Seniors spent Wednesday mornings learning about career possibilities in various fields, with a particular focus on STEM careers.  This included a two-week unit on drone technology.

Juniors spent Wednesday mornings working through the "Relationship Smarts" Life Skills curriculum with a volunteer from Hope, Inc. ​

During our evening Skills Strengthening class, students split their time between test prep courses to prepare for the ACT, SAT and PSAT, and Basic Life Skills courses.

Evenings were packed full of fun, engaging activities, guest speakers and field trips.  Some of our activities this summer included a talent show, swimming, movies, a dance, group olympics, and more!
