Summer Bridge Program 2015

Hosted by: Westlake High School 9th Grade Academy

Program Purpose:

To assist incoming 9th Grade students with their transition from middle school to high school by providing them with the tools and skills needed to achieve academic success before they enter the rigors of high school

Why Attend?

Attending Summer Bridge not only helps support the skills students still need help with but it also puts them ahead of the other students who won’t arrive until August. Students will receive direction instruction in Math, English Language Arts, Biology and Study Skills from highly qualified teachers in an environment that is both engaging and fun.

Session Dates:

The dates of summer bridge will be held June 8 - 19, 2015. Hours and schedules will be announced soon.

Another Why?

While the focus of Summer Bridge is to strengthen our students academically, it also provides an opportunity for them to become familiar with the places and people that make up the Westlake Family. During Summer Bridge Students will also



Meet with administrators, coaches, counselors, and staff



Acquaint themselves with available school resources (media center, athletic facilities, cafeteria auditorium, etc.);



Become immersed in the culture of Westlake High School (The Westlake Way)



Learn about policies particularly important to ninth grade students (tardy, class cuts, etc.)



Interact and begin building meaningful relationship with the Ninth Grade Faculty and each other.
