Here’s another opportunity to expose your student to life on a college campus. This is not a residential program, just a day program. It came highly recommended from one of K’s teachers. Cal State Northridge’s Summer Academic and Enrichment Program (SAEP) offers enrichment programs for students in grades 6th – 8th and academic programs for students in grades 9-12.
The academic program is for high school students seeking to earn high school credit during the summer. It has two distinct paths. A student can either enroll in one year-long course condensed into four weeks or two semester-long courses. When completed, the year-long course will have earned your student 10 units. The semester long courses earn the student 5 units each. All of the Academic classes (with the exception of the Math Preview and the SAT Prep courses) have been approved through LAUSD as UCOP accepted a-g courses. All LAUSD high schools are required to accept these courses as meeting your student’s high school graduation requirements.
The year-long courses include Spanish, math and science classes and a typical day is from 8 am – 1:15 pm with free tutoring available afterward. The cost is $700 for the academic courses, $600 for the enrichment and scholarships are available. The program runs June 22 through July 24 and registration opens March 1st.
