SHP SUMMER SESSION 2023
SHP Summer Session features a variety of courses and experiences designed to fit the unique opportunity for learning which summertime makes possible. Courses are offered as intensive learning experiences over a period of four to seven weeks. Pay close attention to course details to ensure your desired course meets your (or your students’) learning style and needs. All courses, regardless of length, will include the same amount of coursework (60 hours for semester-long courses, 120 hours for year-long), so the shorter the calendar length of a course, the more intensive it is. No classes will meet on the Juneteenth Holiday (June 19) or Independence Day (July 3-4).
Students who typically thrive in fully online or hybrid courses are self-directed, motivated, technology proficient, and independent learners. Students must be comfortable studying, participating in online discussions, and learning in an online environment. They must have regular access to a computer and the internet for the entire duration of the course. While online learning has flexibility, these courses require regular online participation, meeting submission deadlines, and face-to-face meetings as determined by the course instructor. Families should note course-specific synchronous meeting times/dates and reserve these times on their student’s calendar. Families should also ensure that their student has additional time in their days protected to complete the balance of their coursework, which can be quite substantial.
Please note that teachers reserve the right to refine the class meeting schedule as summer approaches. Courses have limited capacity, so enrollment is not guaranteed. Courses with remaining capacity after Monday, March 6 are open to non-SHP students who meet academic requirements. Courses without enough enrollment by April 28, 2023 will not be offered. Registration Process
While we strive to make space in summer academic courses for all students who wish to enroll, student demand for a particular course sometimes exceeds its capacity. This is most often true for Religious Studies and Science courses. Students for whom enrollment in a summer course is an important priority should submit a course request before February 28. If at that time, demand exceeds capacity for a summer course, we will utilize a lottery system to fairly allocate course seats. Students who are not assigned a seat based on the outcome of the lottery will be placed on a waiting list in the order of their lottery number. Students who are assigned a course seat will receive an email with a registration link and will then have three days to secure their seat with tuition payment. Any student who does not register within these three days will lose their seat, so that it can be offered to the next student on the waiting list. Course Request Portal Opens
Monday, February 6 at 9:00amStudents and families may formally request enrollment for summer session courses starting Monday, Feb. 6. No payment is required at this time.
Registration open February 6, 2023 at 9:00 am. Lottery DeadlineMonday, February 27 at 6:00pmAfter the lottery deadline, seats in courses that are over capacity will be assigned first to students who qualify for priority registration (see below) and then to students selected via lottery. Students who get a seat will receive an email with a link to register and submit tuition payment. Students who do not will be placed on a waitlist and notified accordingly. Final Registration Deadline Friday, April 28 at 6:00pmFollowing the Lottery deadline and beginning on Monday March 6, students and families will still be able to register for courses that are not yet at capacity on a first-come-first-serve basis until Friday, April 28.
The demand for SHP Summer Session courses always exceeds capacity, particularly true for Religious Studies and Science courses. In order to facilitate equitable access to these high-demand courses, we will assign available course seats via lottery among students who have requested enrollment by the initial “Lottery Deadline” on February 27 at 6pm. Priority Registration
Students who meet certain strict criteria may be eligible for priority registration, which allows access to course seats in advance of the lottery. Students who qualify for priority registration must reach out to their school counselor to confirm eligibility and submit a course request online by the Feb 27 deadline.Non-SHP Students
SHP welcomes students from other high schools to enroll in several of its Summer Session courses: Geometry Jump, Physics, and Mandarin 2. Students who wish to enroll may do so after March 6, 2023 via the web portal--pending availability.

Registration for Academic Edge courses takes place separately from for-credit, academic summer session courses. Registration information will be available on this website by the end of January.
