Summer Academy 2017 was another adventure for our students in both academic and extracurricular activities. The students participated in classes such as English, math, science, and foreign language that will help prepare them for the upcoming year of high school. Upward Bound was excited to introduce a few new and stimulating courses this summer, including sign language and Chinese. The science courses included anatomy/physiology, chemistry, psychology, and STEM. In anatomy, students got the chance to dissect bovine hearts and eyes as well as a sheep’s brain! The elective options this summer were fitness; health education; music and media; and real talk university, which was a college preparatory course. This summer our seniors and juniors were given an opportunity to apply to take a 3-credit-hour college course in cultural anthropology or communications (speech). All students that participated in these college courses passed!
