ACADEMIC BOOT CAMPS
Algebra II Boot Camp (grades 10 & 11)
This boot camp is offered to prepare rising 10th and 11th grade students with the tools they need to succeed in a rigorous college-prep Algebra II or Honors Algebra II/Trigonometry course. The course will strengthen basic algebraic skills including: dealing with fractions and rational expressions, solving and graphing quadratic equations using various factoring methods; solve linear equations with fractional coefficients, solving multi-step equations, understanding concepts of functions; identifying domain and range; properties of exponents; solving systems of equations and linear equations; and simplifying radicals.

This class will provide critical thinking and problem-solving skill development for every type of learner and is strongly recommended for all students taking an Algebra II course next year. The course content will also help students prepare for college entrance exams.

Session 2 - 8/23-8/27, 12:00-2:00

Critical Thinking & Problem Solving for the High School Student (grades 9-12)
This program will provide students with some of the most essential building blocks needed to tackle any Academy course. Not sure how to start an essay? We’ll look at that. Writing too few (or too many) notes for an assignment? We can help. Always narrowing it down to two and then picking the wrong multiple choice answer? We’ve got that one too. It all comes down to thinking.  We will explore current events, the Academy-wide summer reading, and even your favorite Netflix shows to develop these key components to critical thinking and problem solving:

Curiosity: The readiness to ask questions about the material in front of you (as well as the world around you).
Creativity: The ability to come up with new ideas and to apply them to all your courses.
Criticism: The artistry of analyzing information, ideas, and opinions to create educated theories and judgments.
Communication: The ability to convey your thoughts in a clear and convincing manner in a range of forms and media.

Two sessions of this one-week program will be offered.

Session 1 - 7/26-7/30, 11:30-1:30
Session 2 - 8/2-8/6, 11:30-1:30

English PSAT/SAT/ACT Boot Camp (grades 9-12)
This English PSAT/SAT/ACT boot camp is offered to help students boost their performance on college entrance examinations.  The course will focus on critical reading as well as writing.

Successful writing on these standardized tests is informed by critical thinking and demonstrates: the command of textual evidence; efficiency in the expression of ideas; and familiarity with standard English language conventions.  We will closely read, analyze, interpret, and improve passages of fiction and nonfiction, as well as discuss strategies for handling difficulties.  The program is designed to:

EXPAND vocabulary
REFRESH grammar
IDENTIFY how punctuation, transitions, and signal words affect meaning
CLARIFY the relationships between ideas in a piece of literature to unlock meaning.

The Heart of Algebra

Advanced Math
Calculator Applications [TI-84 graphing calculator needed for the camp]

Writing Boot Camp (grades 9-12)
The goal of this boot camp is for students to work on one of the most important skills for any class: improving essay writing skills. The camp will break the essay down into manageable pieces and focus on how to write a successful essay every time. Each day will focus on a different aspect of the essay-writing process. We will begin with crafting a line of reasoning, thesis statements, and introductory paragraphs, before moving on to topic and conclusion sentences in body paragraphs. We’ll then work on evidence, both examining evidence and incorporating it in an essay with commentary and analysis as well as MLA formatting and citations.  Finally, students will work on putting all of the pieces together in a cohesive manner to write a final essay.

Session 2 - 8/2-8/6, 9:00-11:00
