All courses meet Monday through Friday (excluding July 5th observed holiday.) Please note that some courses begin on Wednesday, June 9th. Please watch the dates carefully. 

High school level courses are offered in academic subjects for female and male students entering grades 9-12. Courses are offered in 3-week sessions (1 semester) or 6-week sessions (2 semesters).

Main Session: June 9-July 16, 2021

Credit Courses

All courses meet the same standards and cover the same material as the regular school year courses.  Credit courses meet U.C. “a-g” requirements.

You are strongly advised to review any course pre-requisites and consult with your child’s academic counselor to ensure that your student is ready and qualified to take the course that you have requested. It is also your sole responsibility to be sure that your child’s school will accept credit for this course. Daily attendance in class for credit classes is mandatory. If a student misses more than 2 days of class, credit cannot be granted for the course. 

Incoming Freshmen

Incoming Freshmen are only allowed to take Credit Courses after a careful review of the individual candidate’s academic performance, recommendations and test scores. Please contact Matthew Ramos, Director of Admissions at matthew.ramos@jesuithighschool.org for information.

This 6-week course prepares students for Calculus by introducing and reinforcing algebraic skills required for success in that course. The first three weeks will focus on simplifying expressions, solving equations and inequalities, functions, graphing, transformations, higher degree polynomial functions, and inverse functions. The last three weeks will focus on transcendental functions (exponential and logarithmic) and trigonometry. Students will learn and apply fundamental identities and the Unit Circle to a variety of problems, apply transformations to graph trigonometric functions. Building upon that, students will be expected to apply other trigonometric identities (addition/subtraction, double & half angle formulas, sum-to-product, and product-to-sum) to solve a variety of problems. The course concludes with inverse trig functions, applying the laws of sines and cosines, vectors, and representing complex numbers in trigonometric form.

Pre-Requisites for Jesuit Students: Open to current 11th-grade students earning an A in regular Algebra 2 or B in Algebra 2H and subject to instructor approval. The course may also be taken to remediate a Pre-Calculus grade earned during the regular academic year.

Review & Enrichment

Algebra I Review

June 9-June 25 OR June 28-July 15: 8:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.

This course is designed for students who have completed a full year Algebra I course but need additional instruction in preparation for taking an accelerated or honors level course at Jesuit. The expectation is that students who successfully complete this course will demonstrate mastery of Algebra I concepts in line with those students taking accelerated Algebra 1 at Jesuit. Students will be assessed on a weekly basis and will take an exam similar in content and rigor to the year-end final exam in Algebra 1(XL). 

JESUIT STUDENTS: Incoming freshmen may not register for this class without Department Approval. This course is aimed at incoming freshmen who require reinforcement of Algebra I skills in order to advance into Geometry that Fall. Permission to take this course is based upon the results of the Math challenge tests administered in April.

Format: In-Person 

Cost: $400 plus $50 registration fee

College Application Workshop

Session 1: June 7-June 11 from 8:00 a.m. – 10:00 a.m. OR 10:15 a.m. – 12:15 p.m.

This course will guide and help each student in understanding every stage of the college application process. At the end of this workshop, students will have the potential to have most of the college application process completed. (There are a limited number of seats in this course. This course is open to Jesuit students only.)

Marauder Seminar 

June 14 – July 2: 8:00 a.m. – 12:15 p.m.

During this class, the students will begin the summer required reading assignment including taking proper notes, exploring the important plot points, character development and new vocabulary. This helps take the pressure of students AND parents to get this assignment started and help get ready for the exam in the fall. Students will meet and get to know some of the other students who will become their classmates in the fall – starting some of those life-long friendships that they’ll always remember. Students will become more comfortable and ready to start their classes in the fall by getting to know some of their new teachers and expectations as members of the class of 2025. Students will work on organization, proper study habits, and personal accountability. They’ll become familiar with how technology is utilized on campus including how Google Classroom is used to communicate with teachers and how assignments are posted. They’ll review and reinforce important math concepts that they will build on during their career at Jesuit and in college. All of this is geared to make your son’s transition to Jesuit smooth, successful and less stressful. 

This class is open to boys who will be entering Jesuit in the Fall of 2021 as freshmen only. 

Format: In-Person

Prerequisite: Must be an incoming Jesuit freshman – fall 2021
Cost: $500 plus $50 registration fee
