2018 Summer Bridge to College and Career Success
As APRCHS prepares to welcome the Class of 2022, we would like to highlight those new freshmen students who have spent their summer with us in the Summer Bridge Program.
These students spent 6 weeks expanding their knowledge in Science, Mathematics, and English Language Arts.
In English Language Arts class students read “The House on Mango Street” and learned about culture, identity, and how to analyze literature in a meaningful way.
In Science, they expanded their knowledge of scientific methodology, ecology, cells, and energy cycles.
Students continued their growth in Mathematics by brushing up on pre-algebra concepts, and learning how to use the Delta Math Program.
For our Summer Bridge students, learning went beyond the classroom walls of A. Philip Randolph High School. In order to provide students with hands on learning experiences, the Summer Bridge Program traveled to the Bronx Zoo, the CCNY Science Department, the CUNY Medical Center, the Bronx Botanical Gardens, and the Museum of Natural History.
We ended our summer with a final celebration to mark the culmination of our program. Students and their family members joined us for some refreshments to celebrate our award recipients and share our favorite memories from the program. We are very excited to welcome these Summer Bridge Program students along with their classmates to the Randolph Family.
Welcome to A. Philip Randolph Campus High School Class of 2022!
