Class of 2025 Info


Registration for Ghost Summer 2021 is now closed.

For the Class of 2025, Ghost Summer offers you the opportunity to get a jumpstart on your academic career at HGP by earning academic (GPA) credit for the 2021-22 academic year, pursue additional enrichment experiences, or diversify your academic resume - all before your first official semester as a Firebird. The Ghost Summer course offerings cover a wide range of topics, from journalism to jazz improvisation and from cinema studies to video game design. 

There are three sessions to Ghost Summer, beginning June 14, July 5, and July 26, respectively. Each course is either three or six weeks and is worth a quarter, half, or full credit. When you take a Ghost Summer course, you will get academic (GPA) credit for it and it will appear on your HGP transcript. Each course is either online self-paced, synchronous online, hybrid (a mix of synchronous virtual meetings, individual asynchronous work, and/or in-person meetings), or entirely in-person on campus. 

Session 1 (June 14 - July 2): 2D Game Design, Jazz Improvisation, Journalism, Scriptwriting, VEX Robotics

Session 2 (July 5 - July 23): Competitive Performance Prep, Intro to the Arab World, Intro to Persian
