What is Brown Summer High School?
Brown Summer High School is a morning enrichment program that provides motivated local students with a chance to pursue study in areas that interest them most. Courses are offered in English, Mathematics, Science and Social Studies.
Students at Brown Summer High School are a community of excited learners from Providence, Central Falls, and other communities in Rhode Island. BSHS will enroll students on a first-come, first-serve basis until full or until July 12, 2021, whichever comes first.
BSHS will be online this year and there will be no fee. In order to participate, you will need access to a computer or a Chromebook during class time as well as to do homework for each class. You also should have an internet connection or a hot spot that is strong enough to allow you to participate in online classes on Zoom.
Brown Summer High School challenges students to think deeply about big questions. Students pursue deep learning in up to three courses during the month of July. Courses include hands-on and experiential learning that is focused on collaboration, discussion, and creative labs and projects. All courses have a focus on equity and justice so that learning is relevant to students’ daily lives. Regardless of your plans beyond high school, as a BSHS student, you will develop skills and insights valuable to all of your future endeavors!
Students are able to sign up for 1, 2, or 3 classes this year, and are able to rank course choices. Because available courses are based on the number of master's students in each teaching program, we cannot guarantee the availability of your course selection.
