The Semester Schools Network represents 13 schools offering semester-length educational opportunities for talented high school students. Students leave their home schools behind to attend our semester programs, returning with academic credit, out-of-classroom experiences, and a whole new worldview. We have enrolled thousands of students from hundreds of high schools across the U.S. and world. Choose from semester schools located in big cities, small towns, mountains, forests, coasts and more.
