Garces Summer School

Garces Memorial High School offers a summer session for students entering grades five through twelve in the academic year 2018/2019.

In its 27th year of operation, the summer curriculum is a combination of academic, athletic and enrichment classes, which are offered, in a relaxed, safe atmosphere. Most classes are small which facilitates individualized learning to meet the needs of students from different educational backgrounds. For the convenience of students going on vacation, we offer most middle school classes in 2-week blocks. Please read through the catalog to see all course offerings.

(Incoming 5th - 12th grades) for all summer school classes

Some classes have a limited enrollment. Students cannot be officially enrolled until tuition fees are paid. We reserve the right to cancel courses with less than 12 applicants. Efforts will be made to accommodate the choice of periods with respect to the classes that have been selected for each student. We do not guarantee that this will be possible in all cases. We will add additional courses, as needed, but due to limited classroom space, these classes will most likely be added to third or fourth periods. The only summer school grades posted on the Garces transcript will be 5 and 10 unit classes.


All tuition prices are quoted at the end of the description of each course. Tuition must be paid in full at the time of registration. Tuition for all courses includes a $75.00 non-refundable registration fee. Tuition refund requests must be submitted in person in writing and be received by May 4th. Tuition will not be refunded for applications withdrawn after the close of school on May 4, 2018. Books are not included in tuition.
