Welcome to Southern Garrett High School

Southern Garrett High School, the largest educational facility in predominately rural Garrett County, Maryland, strives to provide students with a variety of educational experiences to meet their individual needs. By providing successful school experiences, we prepare students to become life-long learners. We challenge students to strive for personal excellence and responsible citizenship as they develop intellectually, socially, emotionally, and physically.

Free Summer Refresher Courses at Garrett College  Helping students to avoid taking developmental coursework provides them with the opportunity to complete their program of study and graduate more quickly and it saves them money that would otherwise be spent on taking non-credit bearing developmental coursework. All new students at Garrett College will be given the option to take either a one-day face-to-face or an online refresher course prior to taking the placement test for the first time. Students may opt to take these refresher courses if they feel they will not perform well, are facing test anxiety, or feel they can do better with help up-front. Additionally, students will be required to take either the face-to-face or the online refresher if they choose to re-test. Participating in one of the intervention methods will be the student’s “fee” for re-taking the placement test. Furthermore, the refresher course program is also open to returning students who may be looking to move into upper level courses. To register or if you have any general questions about the program: Call Christine Uphole at 301-387-3715 or email at
