Student work is graded, and students receive grades and comments on a report card at the end of the course; students do not receive course credit or a transcript for these bridge courses. Because of the pacing and intensity of summer courses, students must have the ability to login and complete work for their course daily; students must be available and have internet access from July 13th until August 7th – this is nonnegotiable!

The teachers themselves come from great independent schools around the country and are caring, supportive, and highly trained - meet some of them here!
