A warm welcome to you, the students and families of the Class of 2025! Throughout spring and summer, this page serves as a resource for our incoming students and families, with important information, links and due dates. Please bookmark the page and check your spam folders to ensure you are opening all of your SHC communication. Information in bold may include links to other pages or forms. 

We will refresh due dates, information, and links on this page until September 1. By then, students and families will be able to use SHC’s learning management system, Schoology, for announcements, coursework, homework, and updates from groups such as SHC Announcements, the Parent Association, counselors, teams and clubs.

5/1: Student and Family Information Survey due. Class of 2025 families have been sent the link to complete this survey. If you have not yet received the link, or need to update your email address, please contact Ms. Veronica Zermani, SHC Registrar, at

5/3: LOTE CHOICE due. Select the Language Other Than English (LOTE) and level that you would like to study at SHC! Students with prior language experience are asked to complete a short placement exam.

Note: there will not be a math placement test this spring. Ninth graders will be assigned to math classes based on junior high grades, test scores, and teacher recommendations, and the HSPT.

5/3: VPA SELECTION due. Visual and Performing Arts classes are optional, seventh classes for ninth graders. The link will explain your options and how to show us your artistic talent. Taking a seventh class requires good time management and focus, but VPA classes develop creativity and problem-solving skills, and make for joyful learning! 

6/1 Jumpstart, an introduction to learning, technology and Wellness at SHC, facilitated by SHC teachers and student Wellness Ambassadors, begins its first session. All incoming ninth graders are expected to attend one of the sessions. Sessions meet for three half-days and all sessions will meet in-person on the SHC campus (subject to current public health directives). Students enrolled in SHC Summer High School should select Session D (which is reserved solely for those students). Jumpstart participants will be asked to adhere to SHC's Covid Safety Guidelines for summer; this requires parents/guardians to complete and share a Ruvna health check each day of the session. Please note: as of June 15, San Francisco has not lifted requirements for the use of face coverings and other operational safety protocols for schools.

SUMMER ASSIGNMENTS: Our school-wide summer 2021 read was selected by the LOTE department. Click here for information about One School, One Question (OSOQ), including book titles and assessment. All SHC students are asked to read a book from the OSOQ list this summer. In addition, some SHC courses have summer assignments, including the DePaul Scholar English 1,2 (here) and second, third, and fourth year LOTE courses (here.)

Class schedules have been mailed to students. Please use those to obtain the necessary resources and books from the RESOURCE & BOOK LIST 2021-22: Please see Ms. O'Neill's video for information about using the list to purchase texts and to pay for course materials via the links on the first page of the List. 

See the links under Calendars or click here for the Daily Bell Schedules for 2021-22. Note that all ninth graders have either a block 7 or block 8 PE/Health class that begins at 8:00am and meets one day a week. 

The SHC Dress Code is intended to allow students to focus on learning and to represent the school. The Dress Code includes guidelines for regular school attire and for dress up attire (worn for community events and special occasions, such as mass.) Dress up attire may be purchased here; a variety of SHC attire may be purchased here. Please see Ms. Nastari's video for further details about our dress code.
