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 - Summerbridge Saturdays
During the school year, Summerbridge students receive tutoring every other Saturday from area high school and college student-volunteers at Moravian Academy's Middle School. Together, they complete homework, study for tests, and work on projects. In addition, each student completes an enrichment activity. Students also participate in monthly field trips including a hayride, laser tag, bowling, ice skating, hiking, the movies, and a tour of a local college.
The Best Thing About Summerbridge
We all love learning. Teachers and students alike come to Summerbridge to grow as people and to learn. As we get to know ourselves and each other, we discover that while we may feel awkward and unsure of ourselves sometimes, we aren't alone. We are all a little bit weird and silly and strange and awesome. And when we come together at Summerbridge, we don't just learn science and math and literature and writing, we learn about who we want to become and how to feel comfortable in our own skin. At Summerbridge we celebrate each teacher and student for exactly who they are.
