Intersession is a unique term of study designed to provide our students the chance to
enrich their Saints Experience and their college prep curriculum by engaging in a variety
of interest-based courses.
Our desire to help students develop a passion for learning can sometimes be difficult to
accomplish in traditional college prep classes. Providing students the opportunity to
investigate studies in areas that interest them sparks a curiosity and inquisitiveness that
naturally stimulates their desire to learn new things. Offering courses like Christian
service in a cultural context, marine biology, architecture, small business management,
sailing, cooking, and a host of internship opportunities, will give the students new and
unique opportunities to discover a passion and/or skill set that they may embrace well
beyond high school.
The Intersession term for the 2022-2023 school year begins on January 3, 2023, and
ends on January 27, 2023. Martin Luther King Day will be observed on January 16,
All Intersession courses are a significant part of the graduation requirements for
St. Augustine High School. Regular attendance during Intersession is also necessary for
a meaningful learning experience. Since Intersession courses are compacted semester
courses, students should not miss more than two days of Intersession. If a student is
absent three (3) days from an Intersession course, he may be denied credit in that class
thus affecting his graduation credits required for the St. Augustine High School
Every Wednesday during Intersession, school begins with Mass followed by the courses
in which students are enrolled. Please note that “Tie Day” attire will be observed on all
Mass days. For those students enrolled in courses that take place on campus, each
school day will take place from 7:45 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Those students enrolled in
courses that take place off campus should consult with their faculty supervisor to verify
daily start and finish times.
During Intersession, every course which includes those taught on campus, as well as
those that take place off campus, (i.e., sports/athletics, internships, and travel courses)
will follow ALL regular school policies with respect to grades, attendance, standards of
dress, and student discipline. If you have any additional questions or concerns
regarding Intersession please e-mail Mr. Hecht at firstname.lastname@example.org.
