Summer Program (June 13th-July 29th)
Lehigh Valley Summerbridge students attend a rigorous six-week program taught entirely by high school and college students. Summerbridge is an enrichment program. Students are introduced to new material; the program is not remedial. Academic classes, with an average of 6-8 students, focus on pre-algebra mathematics, expository writing, literature, and laboratory science. Special summer events include: community service projects, a talent show, a weekly speaker's series, an Olympics game day, and an end of the summer celebration.
School Year Program
During the school year, area high school and college students volunteer one or more afternoons a week to tutor with Summerbridge students at their schools. Together they complete homework, study for tests, and work on projects. In addition, each school completes an enrichment activity. Students also participate in monthly field trips including a hayride, laser tag, bowling, ice skating, hiking, the movies, and a visit to a local college.
