Beginning this summer, Seton High School is excited to announce that students will have the ability to take summer course work. These offerings will enable students to either explore courses of interest that they otherwise cannot fit into their schedules or open up their fall schedules for other electives. This is an amazing opportunity for students to take advantage of, giving them much more availability and choice for their future class schedules! This year's summer courses include a variety of topics such as Health, Marketing and Ceramics.
The cost for each course is $300. Students who take a summer course must carry a full academic schedule during the upcoming school year. Students may miss one in-person class during the term to allow for family vacations. Absences must be communicated to the instructor in advance.
Hybrid courses will consist of both online and in-person sessions which will run eight weeks from June 2 through July 28. Required in-person classroom sessions will take place on Thursdays from 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.
