Virtual Course Fair. The 2021 virtual course fair is an integral part of every student’s transition to SHS. This year we will be offering a virtual course fair available through our SHS You Tube channel. Each department has spent a lot of time creating presentations to give each student an idea of what SHS has to offer. In the coming weeks, our grade 8 teachers will be recommending course levels for next year and each student will also have the opportunity to choose electives to go along with their core classes. Come see what our comprehensive high school has to offer.

The course fair will open at 5PM on Thursday, 1/14. It will remain available on this channel throughout the spring. Please make sure to visit this link and select our “Southington High School Course Fair Playlist” before choosing your courses for next year!
