Registration for Grades K-8 will be open until May 24, 2022 in Community Pass, registration for high school programs has ended. The location for in person programs will be Bloomfield Hills High School.
For students that have completed kindergarten through eighth grade, BHS Summer Academy will include small group instruction designed to build confidence with grade-level skills and provide enriched social experiences. The summer academy will focus on math and literacy skills as well as the opportunity to interact with peers and teachers. Learning will take place in person at Bloomfield Hills High School from 9 to 11:30 a.m. on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday and is open to all Bloomfield Hills Schools students at no charge.
Students who have completed kindergarten through eighth grade also can participate in Staying Sharp virtual learning with a focus on math and literacy. These live-virtual sessions take place three days per week, for 30 minutes, for five weeks, and cost $75 (no cost for students with free/reduced lunch status). Students will meet virtually between 9 and 11 a.m. with the precise window and access information provided in early June.
High school students have a variety of summer program options. The learning format is virtual, with in-person office hours for tutoring and support offered on the Bloomfield Hills High School campus. Summer programming for high school students offers two options; (1) recover credits for a course that was not successfully passed during the school year, (2) earn credit for a required course in order to advance and accelerate their high school curriculum.
