Summer High School 2021

Our program is based on the courses offered by the Palos Verdes Peninsula Unified School District during the academic school year.  The classes are taught by certificated high school teachers using the same texts and materials used during the regular year. These courses are academically rigorous and are recommended for students who are motivated. Almost all courses are offered for academic credit and most credits are accepted by surrounding school districts as well as the PVPUSD (please check with your counselor to verify credit).


2020 tuition for year-long courses is $660; Semester courses are $330. Lab Fees are $60/year or $30/semester, where appropriate.
