The Partners Program Summer Academy is a free, 4-week summer program (June 17-July 15) featuring daily classes in Math, Reading, Writing, Debate, Dance and Art and weekly clubs and field-trips. With a student/teacher ratio of 1:4, students receive individualized attention to support their academic and personal growth. Summer Academy is held on The College Preparatory Campus, 6100 Broadway in Oakland.The Partners commitment
does not end with Summer Academy; Once students complete their first Summer, we meet with them over the school year as part of our Academic Year Mentoring program (AYM) to build on students' strengths and support their areas of growth. During students' 8th grade year, our High School Advising (HSA) assists families in researching and applying to high-quality, college-preparatory high schools. So, current 6th grade families accepted into the program have guaranteed academic and personal support for 3-summers and 2-academic years as well as high school transition assistance!For Returning Students:
