Additional Option for Returning Sixth Graders

Returning ED students who will be completing sixth grade in June 2020 are also eligible to apply for the following Secondary Division (SD) courses on the Berkeley campus:

Spaces in these six-week courses are reserved for exceptional returning students who are ready for the challenge of demanding, rigorous coursework. The Director will determine admission and placement. Students who decide to apply to SD must complete an SD application. Former ED students applying to SD are considered new students for application purposes. The SD early application deadline is Wednesday, February 5 (recommended), and the standard deadline is Wednesday, March 4.

Since placement in SD is not guaranteed for returning sixth graders, a sixth grade SD application should also include acceptable ED course choices as alternatives.
