We know of no single programs that prepare students both for success in college and entry to graduate school. Here we will describe a 5- week summer program that attempts to do that.

This 5- week summer program helps students with Math, Writing and gives them access to information on graduate schools and research as a career. We recruit primarily underrepresented or economically disadvantaged (Pell eligible) entering freshmen science students (likely science majors) using a rigorous application form that includes high school transcripts, letter of recommendation and an essay.

For success in improving academic skills, motivation is key. That’s why we carefully and rigorously evaluate all candidates for this program. And that’s why we can claim some success.

For science majors, Math is critical. So let’s begin with describing our Math program, which runs 3 days a week, for 5 weeks, all day, usually Mon, Tues and Fri.
