iHigh Summer Program Information Updated 03-26-14

Students taking iHigh summer courses will receive a transcript grade. Please read all Summer Program requirements carefully prior to submitting the application packet. iHigh Summer Program locations: Serra High School and iHigh/Old Town (June 23 to August 1). Application deadline May 30th.
San Diego Unified is also offering on-site credit recovery courses and online credit recovery courses at the following high school campuses (June 23 to August 1): Clairemont, Crawford, Kearny, Lincoln, Mira Mesa, Morse and Serra. Go to deadline May 2nd.

The iHigh Virtual Academy 2014 Summer Program is funded by Operation Student Virtual Learning (OSVL) grant. Military students have priority for enrollment. Non-military students are also welcome and are accepted on a space-available basis until capacity is reached.

Is the iHigh Summer Program right for you?

iHigh courses combine online instruction, assignments and tests with face-to-face proctored exams and tutoring. Students must be available to report to one of the iHigh summer locations (Serra High or iHigh/Old Town) for proctored exams during the regular summer school day (7:30 AM-11:45 AM). Credentialed iHigh teachers will be on campus daily to assist students with coursework. Students attend the first-day Orientation (2 hours), and then may work from home or work on campus, except for proctored exams. Students must have an active email address and daily access to an Internet-connected computer (no iPads). Netbooks or laptops will be available for use on campus. Most courses require about 3 hours of coursework per day in order to earn one semester of credit. Science courses require daily attendance (4 hours per day) to meet hands-on lab requirements.


Students who plan to be on travel during the summer session should carefully consider whether they will be able to complete all coursework and proctored exams while on travel, to avoid a situation that results in a low transcript grade.

  • Eligibility: Students entering grades 9-12 in Fall 2014 who live within the San Diego Unified School District boundaries, or who attend SDUSD schools full time on an approved interdistrict transfer, are eligible to apply. Students must have an active email address, daily access to an Internet-connected computer, transportation to the assigned iHigh location for Orientation and proctored exams, and a completed iHigh Summer Program application packet
  • Courses: Please see the iHigh Proposed Summer Course List included in application the  packet and consult with your school counselor to ensure accurate course selection.
  • Course Limits: Students may only take one iHigh course at a time. Example, a student would need to complete Geometry 1 by July 14 (three-week point) in order to enroll in Geometry 2. Most students are able to complete either one full-version course or two credit-recovery courses during the six-week summer session. It is not possible for students to enroll at iHigh and also enroll at a charter school for summer classes. It is not possible for students to take two summer classes at a traditional high school and also take iHigh courses, as school closes at 11:45 AM each day and there would be no time to take the proctored exams.
