Harker Summer Institute, renowned for quality, fast-paced academic programs, has announced classes and registration is open. Many of these upper school elective courses qualify for credit; summer academic classes are equivalent to the courses offered during the academic year and utilize the same text and course materials. Courses are fast-paced and very demanding, and attendance is mandatory to receive credit.
The Institute runs from June 7- Aug. 13 and offerings include mathematics, art, English, forensics and drivers’ ed. Mathematics courses include pre-algebra and geometry classes, as well as advanced programming for those intending to pursue Advanced Placement Computer Science with Data Structures. See prerequisites.
Art classes include graphic arts and beginning and advanced classes in ceramics, drawing and painting; writing and English classes are Expository Writing & Grammar Review and Creative Writing Workshop; Enrichment (Forensics Institute) classes include an array of speech and debate classes; drivers’ education class is the state-required course, four days long, which covers all the material needed for students to pass the California Drivers License written test. All instructors are credentialed.
