Holy Innocents’ Summer Academics program continues developing in students a love of learning, even in the summer months! Our program is proud to offer both traditional in-person learning as well as remote  opportunities for high school students. 

Our traditional program offers a variety of credit forward two-week and four-week courses that provide students with greater academic flexibility during the school year by freeing up space in their schedule for additional electives, including AP coursework, Fine Arts and PEAK offerings, or for more advanced world languages or religion courses than they would otherwise be able to take.

We will continue our offering of remote course options in Biblical Studies and World Religions to families that need more flexibility during the summer months. Same academic expectations but from the comfort of your home, beach house or favorite summer location.
