Ukiah High's Summer Academy Program Begins Monday

Ukiah High's Summer Academy Program Begins Monday 




My name is Matt LaFever and I am the coordinator of Ukiah High's Summer Academy! All incoming freshmen are invited to attend the program. The program begins next Monday and we look forward to seeing you and your child.


Key Details of the Program are as follows:

  • Summer Academy students will get to know the Ukiah High Campus and more importantly, the opportunities they have while on campus. Students will participate in the four Career Technical Education classes including Photography, Machining, Woodworking, and Fashion/Child Development. 

  • The program will run from August 2-August 12, 2021, Monday-Friday, 8:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m daily at Ukiah High School. There are two exceptions: 8/9 & 8/12 when we travel out of the area to tour local colleges. We will leave campus at 7:00 a.m. and arrive back at Ukiah High around 6:00 p.m.

  • Bus transportation will be available at a limited capacity.

  • Summer Academy students will visit Humboldt State University on Monday, August 9th. On Thursday, August 12th, students will visit the University of California, Berkeley. We will leave campus at 7:00 a.m. and arrive back at Ukiah High around 6:00 p.m.

  • Students will be provided a healthy snack every day of the program.

  • There are several opportunities for parents, if you are interested, to participate in the program:

    • First-day briefing for parents and students 8/2/2021 (8:10-8:30). In the gymnasium. Parents will be provided with an overview of the program and the schedule of events. This meeting also provides parents an opportunity to meet with the administration and school staff.

    • Parent night 8/11/2021 – a summary of the program with presentations by students. Information on preparing for college and how to pay for it. Slide show of program highlights. 

    • College Tours 8/9&8/12-Parents may join students for college tours.

We are so excited to help your student get to know Wildcat Nation and start preparing for their freshman year.
