2021 Registration

Please note:

Summer Academy 2021 will be held in-person.  Registration will only be available online.  Please be aware that registration may potentially close on day one due to high demand. Students will be able to select from any available course within your grade level, on the website.  If your first choice is not available, you have the option to enroll in another course or sign up for the course waiting list.  Students may only enroll in one course. Because courses fill up quickly, prior to registration, we encourage you to find 3-5 courses that could interest your student. 

Below you will find the projected courses for 2021.  A course list will be finalized in January.  

 

To ease site traffic, our course registration will open in two phases.  Opening times will be based on grade levels and courses offered.  The times will be at 8:00 AM CST and 8:30 AM CST on March 1st.
