Calling all parents of students who will be entering grades 6, 7, 8, 9, or 10 in Fall 2016!

Do your children like to participate in fun activities during the summer, but you know that they could also benefit from receiving extra support in math for the upcoming year? Would you be interested in your child receiving this support from experienced school teachers and college students, but you know that your child also doesn’t want to spend their entire summer in the classroom?

Well, if that’s the case, then the 2016 Algebra Plus Summer Academy is perfect for you!

Located on the main campus of Northeastern University in Boston, MA, the Algebra Plus Summer Academy provides students with core mathematics instruction taught by a quality teaching team in the morning, and fun elective activities to take part in during the afternoon. We build upon prior math concepts learned in school during this current year in order to guide students toward understanding the newer math concepts that they will encounter during the upcoming year. Our extracurricular activities, lead by college-aged Teaching Assistants, include popular areas of study today, such engineering, coding, cooking, and art; and all students will have the chance to research, design, and implement their own service-learning project which can be used to help better their local community. The Academy also places a heavy significance on educating all of our students on the college selection process, and so weekly trips to various colleges in the Boston area will take place as well.
