SBHS Summer Institute-2020

Please click here for an important information and announcement for the 2020 Summer Institute

The SBHS Summer Institute offers a set of courses which enable a student to advance a course level in a given sequence of courses, begin post-secondary study in an interest area, take a course of studies not currently offered during the school year at South Brunswick High School, complete more advanced or intense study in a given area of interest, or respond to a scheduling conflict which precludes the student taking a course critical to his/her educational plan.

This year’s institute will begin on Monday June 29, 2020. 

  • The six-week classes will end on 8/7.
  • Session I three-week classes end on 7/18. 
  • Session II three-week classes start on 7/22 and end on 8/9
