Garces Memorial High School announced Monday it will hold summer classes online through the Zoom app beginning June 1.

Garces Memorial summer school is open to students entering fifth through 12th grade and, because it’s online, students anywhere can enroll. 

There will be no late fee for registration.

In its 28th year of operation, the school will offer 10-unit courses approved by the Kern High School District in math, English, social studies and Spanish. It will also offer five-unit courses in computer applications, health and theology. Non-credit courses such as SAT prep, art, summer reading and dance will be offered as well.

For fifth through eighth graders, there are two, two-week sessions available.
