Highland Park High School


Summer School Information

Registration will open Wednesday, April 5th at 6:00 am and will close Friday, June 2nd at 4:00 pm. Summer school administrative staff will be available from 9-11 am and 1-3 pm on Friday, June 2nd in the cafeteria to answer any questions regarding registration.

Only students who are classified as freshmen or above for the fall semester immediately following summer school are eligible to attend HPHS Summer School.  Prior to starting a summer school course at HPHS, a student must contact their grade level counselor with any questions prior to registration for a summer school course. Please see the counseling website for information related to summer courses offered outside of HPISD.  If approval is not granted prior to enrollment, the student may not be awarded credit toward graduation. A student may normally earn a maximum of two semesters of credit (one full course unit) in one summer. As HPHS Summer School is self-funded, a minimum number of students must register for each course to cover costs. 

The following credit recovery courses and original credit courses will be offered in either the first, second, or both sessions, contingent on sufficient student enrollment.  Additional courses could be added based on need and teacher availability.  Registration and payment information are located on the left hand side at the bottom under "Registration Instructions".


All courses are offered Monday - Friday during the summer.

Credit Recovery Courses:  Any course that is being taken again due to a failing grade.   Depending on student enrollment, some credit recovery courses (as determined by HPHS administration) will be taken through online credit recovery programs with teacher support.
