We are excited to share PEF’s 2023 Palos Verdes Peninsula Summer School (PVPSS) program information for high school students. Our high school program (June 20-July 27) is available to all students entering 9-12th grades this fall.
PVPSS is pleased to offer both onsite and online/asynchronous courses. The onsite classes will take place four days a week (8:00 am-1:30 pm) on the Palos Verdes High School campus. Although the online course offerings are asynchronous with no attendance, students still need to submit assignments each school day and all deadlines provided by the teacher must be met.
For incoming seniors looking to work on college applications under the leadership of two amazing professionals, feel free to enroll in College Application Prep with Mrs. Baranick (PVPHS head counselor) and Mr. Hall (PVPHS Teacher of the Year and writing specialist). This workshop does not provide grades or credits, as students will focus on creating a balanced college list and writing outstanding college essays. Students enrolled in CAP may also take online Government/Economics with PVPSS.
Please visit pvpss.com for important details and be sure to check out the Summer High School Informational Video tab. Feel free to contact [email protected] with any questions. We look forward to another fantastic summer with you!
