Accelerate your child's learning
The STEM Enrichment Academy Academic Summer Programs
Open to students from all school districts!
Dublin Students – High school credit will be recommended for students who have demonstrated mastery of a course with a grade of A or B.* All Dublin students who plan to take summer courses for credit must complete the “Alternative Course Application” form and turn it into the DHS Counseling Office for approval.** Students who do not complete the form will not be allowed to add the course and grade to their high school transcripts.
Non-Dublin Students – If you go to school outside of the Dublin School District you may take our courses for exposure purposes only. Although our courses are the same courses as taught at Dublin High School, we can only offer college A – G credit to Dublin students. Some districts allow students to "challenge" a course by taking the course final. You will need to check with your district to see if this option is available to you.
2018 Summer Program Courses (Enrollment Begins December 1, 2017)
Please consult with your child's school counselor before enrolling in summer program courses.
* Students applying for “credited” high school courses should verify they meet all pre-requisites required prior to enrollment.
** All Dublin students must complete the Alternative Course Information form in order to receive credit for any summer course taken in any summer program. The form can be obtained in the Dublin High Counseling office or can be downloaded from the Frequently Asked Questions Page of our website.

Summer Program Testimonials
The school district is extremely thankful for the partnership we’ve had with DPIE for the last 19 years. They are a great partner to DUSD and work hard to support the growth of Dublin students. The Summer Academy offers our students and their families a variety of opportunities to expand learning beyond the school year and school day.
- Superintendent Dr. Leslie Boozer
Honors Chemistry is a fast-paced, hands-on, and engaging course that provides students with the knowledge and necessary skills to be successful in higher levels of science. One of the biggest advantages of the summer course is that there is a smaller subset of students who are superbly motivated to learn and help each other -- while still having fun!
- Priyanka Dadlani, Dublin High Honors Chemistry Teacher
With the five hours of class at a time, students and teachers are able to get more done and have richer conversations around material. It is a lot of fun to have the students in one room that are passionate about learning. It has been great because we are teaching Dublin Curriculum and it ensures that our students are receiving a rigorous curriculum that prepares them for their next course. It is great to have our Dublin teachers as leads for each course because again, it ensures that good teaching is happening and everything is getting covered.
- Lenni Velez, DHS Assistant Principal
I have attended the DPIE Summer Academy at Dublin High School for two years now, once for Trigonometry/Pre-calculus and the other for Physical education. While I felt going in that five or more hours of the same subject a day would become exhausting over six weeks, I found the class to be both educational and entertaining. Dealing with Trigonometry and Pre-calculus felt like more of a privilege than a chore towards the end of the summer, and I can attest that my math class was more interesting than I could have hoped for.
- Brian Anderson, DHS Student
My daughter is a 2017 graduate of Dublin High School. Thanks to the DPIE STEM Academy she was able to take P.E. and Health during the summer of her freshmen and sophomore year, opening up her schedule so she could take all the academic classes required to stay on track and participate in the band program. For our family the Academy provided a solution to a scheduling problem. Now as a DPIE Board Member, I see the full range of enrichment the program offers to high school students in Dublin, allowing them to expand their academic opportunities and in some cases, its the only path towards advanced classes prior to graduation

Enrolling in the DPIE Enrichment Academy is a great way for students to strengthen their analytical, problem-solving, and collaboration skills. Students have the opportunity to enrich their understanding of mathematics and science while accelerating through some traditional high school classes. The fast-paced and rigorous courses, which are aligned with the Dublin High School curriculum, encourages students to both obtain proficiency in computational tasks and builds a foundation for critical thinking.
