Ashley Crockett-Lohr, director of communications for University High School, 2825 W 116th St., Carmel, claims there will be something offered for everybody for the upcoming summer months.
“University High School is offering for-credit classes, enrichment programs, and a new June Term class this summer,” she said. “Our for-credit courses this summer include health, physical education, math and art courses. University High School students are certainly eligible to take these classes, but students from other high schools can enroll as well.”
Enrichment programs include computer science classes, STEM, study skills, Minecraft, Mandarin, Harry Potter classes and more. Indiana Primetime Sports hosts sports classes at UHS over the summer, and Crockett-Lohr said the school is working with a local theatre group to have those classes offered on campus, as well.
“The Harry Potter class, called Pottermania, is a special new University High School program for families, called June Term. June Term combines learning and travel,” she said.
During the week of June 20, middle and high school students have daytime classes with Harry Pottery experiences, such as getting sorted into Hogwarts houses and learning to play Quidditch. The parents and students will have the opportunity to travel to Orlando, Fla. for tours and educational programs at The Wizarding World of Harry Potter.
“University High School has offered for-credit high school courses for three years, and this is the second year we’ve offered enrichment programs for middle and high school students. The June Term class is new for 2016,” Crockett-Lohr said. “The engaged learning approach of classes at University High School applies to our summer programs as well, so students who spend their summer with us get a true enrichment experience in a welcoming, laid-back school environment. The programs are diverse, too, so students can take a computer science class one week and a Harry Potter class the next.”
