Back to School Registration/Camps

All SEM Fall Registration
ALL STUDENTS ARE REQUIRED to show up for and complete registration.
Please bring your student's social security card/number and current proof of residency (utility bill-electric, water, lease agreement). No phone bills please. Enrollment takes about 30 to 45 minutes and must be completed at the Townview campus. Please be prepared to provide a contact e-mail address and good day-time phone number to sign up for Parent Portal. Scheduling for enrollment is outlined below.

Freshmen Boot Camp
August 3-7, 8:30am - 2:30pm
All incoming Freshmen are required to attend this Boot Camp which will help the new students familiarize themselves with their fellow classmates, their teachers, and a few upperclassmen that will tell their tales of life as SEM students. This boot camp will help ensure all the new students start their freshman year on the same footing. Although we cannot provide transportation, we will provide lunch. On Friday we will be doing a variety of games and team building activities.

Sophomore Math/Physics Boot Camp
July 27 - 31, 8:30am - 1:30pm
Sophomores were expected to have registered for this camp.
Due to recent changes by College Board to the Physics course material, the SEM math and science department has developed this summer course for sophomores. There is no charge for the camp, and lunch and breakfast will be provided. You will need to provide your own transportation.

Senior College Readiness Boot Camp
Required for all incoming Seniors. From 9:00 am to 4:00 pm on your assigned day.
This boot camp is being conducted to prepare students for their entry into college. Prior to their boot camp, students should have substantial drafts of potential college essays. These drafts should be typed, double-spaced, and IN HAND on the day of the boot camp. Essay prompts with further instructions are in the letter that has been mailed to you. In addition students need their resume, preliminary college list, and student information sheet, all of which should have been completed as part of the College Project. If so they will be ready for you here at the boot camp. If not completed please email Ms. Ashmead ( ). Boot camp schedules are below.
If you have scheduling conflicts please email Ms. Kashyap at

Family Registration Starts Here...


SEM website update

Our content is being moved onto a new platform.  When the transfer is complete, this website will again have all the content and a whole lot MORE!

Look forward to a VASTLY improved calendar function, as well as sub-sites being available for our newly formed SEM Foundation, and each teacher, club, or activity on campus.

We will also give voice to Townview "Shared Services" who don't have easy website access to feature their content. You'll soon be able to read about the library, attendance office, infirmary, central room bookings, vending machines, Townview policies and calendar, band, orchestra, ROTC, art, nursery school, etc.

The website,,  will become more of a PTSA website linked from this new website - maintaining the easy volunteer forms for events, selling of spirit gear & PTSA memberships, accepting donations, and maintaining our family directory.  So... the two websites will work jointly together to complement each other.

Please contact our webmaster should you have any questions, suggestions, or concerns or would like to be in the web group carrying out these improvements.

Thank you for your patience as we move to improve your on-line experience.
