If you have a child entering 6th or 9th grade next year, then you’ll be interested in our Academic Youth Development Academies. The Academic Youth Development Academy prepares incoming 6th & 9th grade students to be successful in middle school and high school. Students will think differently about learning, become committed to high achievement, build relationships, and improve math skills. The program will provide students with a variety of tools and learning strategies associated with success as they transition to a new phase of their education.

Both the 6th and 9th grade AYD academies will be held from May 31 through June 24 from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. each weekday, with the final day of the academy ending at 11 a.m. Registration is $50 with limited spaces available. Register today online  Registration closes May 13.
