Summer Spark is an exciting week-long experience for rising Freshmen, Sophomores and Juniors at Shrewsbury High School. The programs that make up Summer Spark will take students beyond the traditional classroom to AWAKEN new interests, INSPIRE existing passions and EXCITE eager minds. It’s a summer program like none we have offered before!

Drop Off and Pickup Times
Students participating in Summer Spark may be dropped off and picked up in the front of the school. Students will only be allowed on the Shrewsbury High School campus during the hours of 8:45am to 3:15pm. They cannot be dropped before 8:45 am and must be picked up no later than 3:15 pm; teachers will stay until every student is picked up. If you cannot adhere to these drop off and pick up times, please make alternate plans for your child.
The Physics of Sport $300
Drone Technology: Beyond the Remote-Controlled Toy $300
Pre-College Workshop: Explore College Life $325*
*The Pre-College Workshop program has a slightly higher fee because there are three off campus trips included with this program as opposed to one off campus trip with every other program.
Financial Aid is available to qualifying families
There are no additional fees for materials for any program. All costs for busing, museum admissions, journals, etc. are included in the program fee.
Registration and payment is made through the Powerschool Parent Portal. You are limited to one course selection per child for the week. Classes will be closed as they are filled and will no longer be visible on the registration form once closed.
Please note: You will not receive a confirmation email. To confirm your child is enrolled, click “Fee Account Statement” from the menu on the left. If the class is listed and the Balance Due is $0, then your child is enrolled in the class.
Because Summer Spark must be financially self-sufficient, courses that do not attract adequate enrollment will not be offered. If you pay for a class that is listed as “pending and enrolling” and that class is later cancelled, a full refund (including registration fee) will be sent. ONCE FULL PAYMENT HAS BEEN MADE, NO REFUNDS WILL BE GRANTED UNLESS A CLASS IS CANCELLED DUE TO LOW ENROLLMENT.
Payments and Required Forms
To complete your registration, you must submit:
All forms and checks should be mailed as soon as possible to:Summer Spark

All programs will be held at Shrewsbury High School. Transportation to and from Summer Spark at the beginning and end of class time is the responsibility of the student’s family.

All students must submit the "Emergency and Health History Form" after registration. A medication order form must also be on file if your child will require medication during the day. This medication order must be completed and signed by your child's prescriving physician/nurse practitioner and must also be signed by a parent/legal guardian. Please note, teachers are not allowed to dispense medication.
