This summer we are very excited to be offering our annual Summer Bridge Language & Thinking program at UAMA. The program runs from 8:00 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. from Monday through Thursday from July 8th to August 8th, 2019. Breakfast and lunch will be provided (Students are not allowed to leave school for lunch). The registration form can be found below.
The Summer Program is designed to provide you with an opportunity to improve your academic skills in Literacy, Writing, Critical Thinking, and to earn high school credit before you begin in the fall of 2019. Research shows that surpassing 11 credits by the end of 9th grade is an important target to meet for high school success and on-time graduation, as well as to be better prepared for college. This program will also help you take advantage of our Early College model which you can start as early as 10th grade, allowing you to register for classes that confer both High School and College credit. The goal of this program is not only to develop your academic skills but also to have fun learning, build relationships, and help you successfully transition into high school.
Students will have the opportunity to earn Elective Credit over the summer as they sharpen their reading, writing, and argumentation skills in English and practice and prepare for the Algebra Regents and ELA Exams on August 13th. At UAMA all students are expected to take the ELA and Math Regents exams starting in the first year and to keep taking the exam until they reach New York State College Readiness Standards.
Space is limited and students who attend the May 31st Welcome and Orientation will be given seating priority.
All incoming 9th graders are eligible to take both the ELA & Algebra 1 August Regents on Thursday 8/13/18 @ 8:30 am.
