Students take part in summer program
A select group of high school students from Madison County Schools this week began CollegeFirst, a nationally unique summer enrichment program designed to better prepare students for the challenge of college-level Advanced Placement courses in math and science. This joint partnership of Impact Alabama and A-Plus College Ready is sponsored by the law firm Maynard, Cooper & Gale.
Nineteen Impact Alabama staff and 24 college students from UAHuntsville and the University of Alabama will lead these high school sophomores and juniors through three weeks of rigorous curriculum, including advanced math lessons and biology and chemistry labs. Students will improve their skills in critical thinking and writing to increase their chance for success during the school year.
