College Prep Summer Session

Virtual programming for students entering grades 10–12 in fall 2021

It’s all about focus. You’ll choose one subject and dig into it with inspiring teachers, motivated peers, and small classes. You’ll make real progress; in fact, we think you’ll be amazed by what you can accomplish. Some courses cover a full academic year of content, so there are opportunities to earn credit and prepare to move to the next level. (Note: NMH cannot guarantee this credit or acceleration. Students must obtain approval from their own school.)

The details:

  • All programming is virtual.
  • Six-week session: June 28–Aug. 6
  • Three-week sessions: June 28–July 16 OR July 19–Aug. 6
  • Classes meet Monday through Friday 
  • Classes meet in the morning, with the option to join a variety of minor courses in the afternoon or evening, including College Counseling, Public Speaking, K-Pop Dance, or Test Prep Classes.
  • For-credit courses require three hours of instruction per day, with sessions at 9 am, 10:30 am, and 12:30 pm E.T. *Students must attend all three class sessions. PLEASE NOTE - we have adjusted some of the class times to accommodate the currently enrolled students' time zones. Please see the course descriptions section for the current class times.
