SUMMER SCHOOL 2024 - ACADEMIC REALITY CHECK - JUNE 10 to JULY 3
INFO & APPLICATION PACKET

Over the last few years, many students have been given "passing" grades while schools were closed or barely functioning. For over a decade, Cambrian Academy has welcomed students from surrounding schools and prepared them for success in the coming school year. Validating past academics and preparing for the coming year are now more important than ever.

A few morning English openings are still available for new students who are joining us in the fall.

MORNING CLASSES - GREATER DEPTH
GREAT OPPORTUNITY TO REVIEW AND PREPARE

Over the last three summers, it became very clear to us that many surrounding schools had difficulty completing the usual curriculum.

There can be little doubt that even greater gaps have developed in math skills, as many schools taught remotely on modified schedules, while scrambling to comply with ever changing COVID mandates. Even with a return to in-class teaching elementary math skills continue to decline in California public schools.

4 Classes per Week • Monday-Thursday • 9:00am to Noon
ENGLISH - 4 Sessions per Week

Students will hone their English grammar and composition skills using a combination of the Warriner's series and our own proprietary materials. We cover the essay styles essential to future success. FOCUS: Reading & Composition

...but mostly COMPOSITION
Writing, writing, and then writing some more.

PRE-ALGEBRA OR PRE-CALCULUS
Students may use the same online program we use in our for-credit classes to prepare to enter Algebra or Calculus in the fall. The Pre-Algebra program will expose and fill gaps that result from poor math teaching that is unfortunately too common today. The Pre-Calculus class will fill in the gaps left by Common Core IM 1, IM 2, and IM 3.

GUITAR LESSONS / BAND / RECORDING
New guitar players are often frustrated with the amount of time and practice required before they are playing the songs they enjoy.

These lessons will allow guitar players to enjoy the instrument right away. Most Rock and Blues songs consist of only three chords requiring only two fingers, and most Popular songs use the same four chords over and over.

The goal for experienced players is to accelerate their development. The goal for the group is to record a song in our recording studio for the students to keep.

Students should already have their own guitar, but they will have the opportunity to play on our high-end equipment, including a full Marshall stack.

CREDIT REPAIR / GPA REPAIR

*Did you receive a C, D, or F in a core class last semester?
* Do you want to take the standard class so you qualify for the AP in the fall?

We can offer selected online courses that are supervised and proctored by Cambrian Academy faculty. Learning is asynchronous, assistance is available, and all exams are proctored to validate the credit earned. Students repeating a course for a better grade can typically complete a single semester during the summer. The ambitious student who is trying to get further ahead may be able to complete a full-year course during the summer. All courses are UC approved and NCAA listed.

MATH FOR CREDIT - SUMMER 2024 MATH is FULL
Our most popular summer offering combines online preparation with four weeks of in-class, personalized follow-up instruction. Whether you are in need of math CREDIT REPAIR or seeking ADVANCED CREDIT not offered by your own school, this is a highly effective program. Not only do our students regularly demonstrate mastery, they earn a full year's credit that will transfer back to their own school.

PART ONE - ONLINE:

  • Four to six weeks before the start of the in-class session, you will receive access to an online program. When you log in for the first time, you will be given a short tutorial on how to enter your answers into the program, and you will be given an initial assessment.

    This assessment will eliminate from the program those concepts you have already mastered. Next you will be shown a pie chart of all the concepts you will need to learn to complete the class. This program allows you to pick and choose concepts that the system thinks you are ready to learn. Simple tutorials are available for each concept, and this will help you quickly cut down the list of concepts to those still requiring teacher help.
PART TWO - ON CAMPUS:

  • You will then work with a teacher at our San Jose campus four days per week for four weeks. When you complete the program, you will be issued a letter grade based on your percentage completion and a transcript with transferable credit.

    Cambrian Academy is accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges, and these courses are UC approved, so they will transfer as full credit.

INTERNATIONAL

These sessions are for our current international students and international students joining us in the fall.

We do not issue I-20 visas for summer programs or single semesters.

Highlights of summer classes for international students:

  • Math : Summer math will focus on developing the student's abstract math skills by reviewing the basic mathematical relationships and moving into algebraic applications. International students will begin learning the academic English necessary to succeed. Pre-algebra, Algebra, Geometry, Algebra 2
  • Music Production, Band, Tennis: Music and Sports are a great way to round out the day. Students can join the stage band if they already play an instrument or sing. Our 16-Track recording studio is open to students who want to learn more about music production and sound engineering. Eagle-Fustar Tennis provides on-site lessons for students who are developing a strong tennis game.
  • ESL - 4 mornings a week: Our intensive ESL program was specially designed for students from our foreign sister schools. Our Oxford ESL workbooks relate the student's native language to the English lesson of the day, allowing students to hone their skills more quickly. Students will also practice English phonics and accent reduction.
  • English Prep for Mainstream Classes: This class provides some of the academic vocabulary to help students make the transition to the mainstream, including important vocabulary for science and math.
