Summer High School Classes

The Innovation Center will be offering both in-person and online classes over the summer to interested students. SVVSD students who will be in grades 9-12 next year are eligible to sign up for these courses. These are high school courses and students will receive a grade for these classes that will go on their high school transcript. Each class counts as 0.5 Practical Arts credits that apply towards high school graduation requirements.

  • Dates: June 3 – 27, 2024 (4 weeks)
  • Days: Monday – Thursday (no class on Fridays)
  • Times: 9am – 12pm (Morning Session) or 1pm – 4pm (Afternoon Session)
  • Cost: $150 per class
  • Students must be enrolled in a SVVSD high school
  • At this time, district transportation is NOT provided.


If your student plans on missing any days of class, please consider taking these courses during the school year. These are semester long courses condensed into four weeks. Missing one day of summer school is equivalent to missing one week’s worth of content during the normal school year. After three days of absences, your student may be dropped from the class without a refund.
