- For Middle School students, we are offering a five-week Summer Academy that integrates math, science, social studies, and language arts into project-based learning, utilizing a trauma-informed lens. While the majority of the program will be delivered virtually, students will have an opportunity to attend in-person events throughout the summer.
- For High School students, we are offering virtual learning opportunities for 10th and 11th graders to connect with their peers and explore career and postsecondary pathways. Rising seniors will work closely with their advisors to research and apply to colleges.
- For College students, advisors will continue to help graduating high school seniors successfully enroll in college and ensure older students are able to return to college in the fall.
“Students have lost so much during the past 15 months. Sometimes we forget that for some students, their school is critical space for human connection with friends and caring adults outside of their household. Add to that, the loss of so much in-classroom learning resulted in many students struggling academically, in some instances for the first time in their lives.”
– Zakiyyah Kareem, Chief Student Support Officer
SO FAR THIS SUMMER…
