Registration for Summer Enrichment

We are currently transitioning from PlusPortals to the new Blackbaud system. Please note that the 2018-2019 Second Semester grades will be posted on PlusPortals and will be available for viewing until July 31, 2019, after which it will go OFFLINE.
>>>>> Then, starting with Summer Enrichment 2019 classes and going forward into the coming school year, Bishop Gorman will use the new Blackbaud system to post grades, attendance records, etc.  Please FOLLOW THESE DIRECTIONS TO LOG-IN and create your Blackbaud account.


 NEW THIS YEAR: In order to improve continuity of instruction as well as facilitate greater classroom community, students who are taking summer Theology classes in the freshman and sophomore curriculum must enroll for four total weeks. This will allow the students to complete the entire year’s curriculum (two semesters) in the summer. To allow for flexibility with vacations and camps, students may complete this sequence in Sessions 1&2 OR 2&3 OR 1&3. Please take this information into account as you are planning your Summer Enrichment options.
CONTINUING STUDENTS will be able to register for classes after meeting with their counselors to register for the 2019-20 school year
    1. Student receives form from counselor while discussing Summer Enrichment options after the Enrollment Agreement has been completed.  Counselor places notes on form during discussion.
    2. Student and parent fill out form and parent indicates approval with signature.
    3. Student returns with form to counselor (who also verifies that the student has payment ready) for counselor’s signature approval.
    4. Student brings form plus payment to business office*.  Payment may be made in the form of a credit card on file, a personal check, money order or cash.
*Payment in full at time of submission is highly recommended, and is the most certain way of guaranteeing a class placement.  If this is not possible, this form may be submitted with a $100.00 PER CLASS deposit (non-refundable), in order to reserve a class placement.  Full payment is then due to the business office by Friday, May 3, or class placements will be released to other students.

INCOMING FRESHMEN and NEW-TO-GORMAN students will receive registration forms at scheduled registration events. All registration will be done in person with the registration forms. There will be no online registration.  For incoming freshmen and New-to-Gorman students, payment in full at the time of Summer Enrichment registration is required.
Please note:
  • Be advised that the completion and submission of the Summer Enrichment registration form indicates a course request only.  Course requests will be honored on a first-come basis, subject to the availability of placements in classes.  BGHS does not maintain waitlists for class placements.
  • BGHS reserves the right to cancel any class during any session.  In such circumstances, tuition credits will be issued to tuition accounts in the amounts paid.

Summer Enrichment FAQ

List of 8 frequently asked questions.

  • What is the Tuition / Refund Policy?

    • Students should register by submitting full payment by May 3, 2019.  FOR CONTINUING STUDENTS ONLY: Prior to May 3 class seats may be reserved with a $100-per-class deposit.  Full payment is due by May 3. FOR INCOMING FRESHMEN AND NEW-TO-GORMAN STUDENTS: Full payment is due at the time of Summer Enrichment registration.

    • If a student is fully registered and subsequently drops a course after May 3, 2019 no credit or refund will be issued.
  • What Does Cancellation of Classes Mean?

    Bishop Gorman High School reserves the right to cancel any course due to either teacher availability or insufficient enrollment. 
  • What are the requirements for online classes?

    Online Course Expectations
    • Course work is roughly 1-2 hours of work per day for four weeks whether directly online, reading, or completing coursework assignments and students must have internet access over the four weeks that the course is in session.
    • The class is paced and interaction with the class and coursework (by way of reading, assignments, tests, quizzes and online discussion contributions) is paced week-by-week.
    • Since the material within the course is paced, students may not “work ahead,” or finish early.
    • Students should be technologically proficient with respect to word processing and presentation software, and able to work within various online forums such as Edline, Showbie and
    • Students should be self-motivated and able to work in a non-traditional classroom setting.  Although class does not meet together every day in person, class does “meet” through the assistance of electronic forums and discussions.  It is important to be able to identify this non-traditional setting as “class,” and approach it appropriately.
  • What about Textbooks and iPads for my Summer classes?

    Paper texts / teacher-created resources will be provided to all incoming freshmen.  Sophomores, juniors and seniors will be required to purchase e-texts on their school-issued iPads.  All e-book purchases must be made prior to the start of Summer Enrichment, as students will be working in their texts from the first day of class.
    School-Issued iPads
    Incoming freshmen will be working in their summer classes with traditional paper texts and will not have access to a school-issued iPad.  For transferring students a school-issued iPad will be made available through the school’s IT Department for any e-book purchase / course requirement that must be conducted prior to the start of Summer Enrichment courses (see “Textbooks” above).  Transferring students will coordinate this with the Director of Admissions and the IT Department.
  • How Are Classes Assigned?

    Course selections will be assigned on a first-come basis and space is limited.  
  • When & How Will I Receive My Summer Class Schedule Confirmation?

    FOR CONTINUING STUDENTS: Course requests will be confirmed and visible on student schedules through PlusPortals as classes are added (this typically occurs within five business days after full payment is received)
    FOR ALL STUDENTS:  Schedule confirmations will be mailed home AFTER May 3, 2019.
  • What Is The Attendance Policy?

    Summer Enrichment classes are highly concentrated courses of study with each day being equivalent to more than a week of a typical school session. As such, attendance is crucial and students may not be absent for any day or part of a day.  Illness, doctor appointments, sports camps, family vacations and student holiday plans may not be used as exceptions to the attendance policyThree class tardy violations (arriving to any class between 1 to 5 minutes late either at the beginning of the school day or returning from a break) are also equivalent to one absence.  In the event of any absence (including those due to tardiness), students will be disenrolled from the class and no credit will be awarded / no refund given.
  • What is the Summer Enrichment uniform?

    The Summer Enrichment uniform is the regular uniform worn during the school year, with appropriate jeans as an additional option. Returning students, please refer to your Student Handbook under “Dress Code Policies.” Incoming freshmen, please refer to the following points and contact Bishop Gorman for any clarifications.
