Summer Bridge

This summer, all students in the class of 2028 and new incoming members of the Class of 2027 will have the opportunity to attend a special summer session through AUPE’s Summer Bridge Program.

This summer experience will offer students the opportunity to:

  • get a headstart on the year by becoming familiar with staff, peers, & the building,
  • make friends by meeting other students and enjoy open pool swimming sessions,
  • learn leadership skills, and good study habits,
  • get a headstart on the ELA and Algebra classes they will take in the Fall.

While this program is not mandatory, it is highly recommended that all students attend.  The Summer Bridge Program will be an in-person program only. Rest assured, students attending at least one week of in-person combined with some online work will be eligible for high school credit. However, it’s important to note that students will need to attend the entirety of the bridge program to earn credit. Have questions? Email: jnunez73@schools.nyc.gov
