Brazosport College offering Mathematics Bridge Academy

Posted by Sonja Crutcher on April 30, 2015 at 3:00 PM Comments comments (0)

 

My name is Nicole Tunmire and I am the director for the Mathematics Bridge Academy at Brazosport College. In case my name and the Mathematics Bridge Academy are brand new to you, here is a brief history and overview of our program:

The Mathematics Bridge Academy is a program for junior high and high school students that is hosted each summer by Brazosport College. Our primary goal is to help students advance in mathematics while beginning plans for college and career goals. The program began thanks to the Gulf Coast Partners Achieving Student Success grant from the Houston Endowment and has been adopted as part of Brazosport College’s long-term planning initiative: Vision 2020. During the grant funded pilot period (2012-2014), the program reached over 600 Brazosport ISD students, showing mathematics gains in 15 or more objective areas each summer. In addition to the mathematics achievements gained from individualized online software, students have been exposed to a wide variety of local career opportunities through career presentations by area professionals. Many students who thought the “good life” (only obtainable through an expensive degree from a big name school) was only available to the richest and brightest have learned that our area is booming with opportunities for those willing to work hard and that certificates and degrees from Brazosport College can be a launching point for great success.

I am very excited to announce that the pilot period is over and we would like to invite all area students to participate in our unique program!!

Brazosport Christian School-Homeschool partnership 2013-2014

BCS Policy for Homeschool Students

 

Brazosport Christian School is pleased to partner with homeschool families as they seek to educate their children in the home setting, but may desire their children to be in weekly group classes.

After regular enrollment has ended, selected classes are made available for qualified applicants from outside the full-time regular enrollees of BCS. Students who enroll as a BCS “homeschool” student must commit to attending all classes for which they have registered and be accepted, on a regular basis for one academic school year unless providentially hindered. The student will be considered an integral part of the class with all the right and privileges thereof, and, therefore, will be expected to do all class assignments, projects, tests, etc. A report will be issued at the end of the semester, certifying that the course has been taken, completed and passed.

Students are expected to abide by the BCS dress code and all general policies applicable to full time BCS students as delineated in the Student Handbook, including receiving demerits and doing restitution for those demerits; as well as all applicable handbooks found on the BCS website.

Students are expected to arrive for the class on time and then leave when the class is over. Students may not stay at BCS unattended. The parents are asked to contact the school office if they are going to be late in picking up the student.

Attendance as a “homeschool” student does not qualify the student to participate in activities of the school unrelated to the particular class taken (Protocol classes and events, etc.). The student is invited to attend all field trips as related to their specific class and must pay additional admissions fees particular to the event. Arrangements may be made to take PSAT or Terra Nova tests on a per test cost basis.

Interested families are required to apply to BCS through the regular admissions process (Includes testing) and to include a $100.00 application fee with their application. There is a $50 Registration fee after acceptance. Classes for 2013-2014 school year begin August 14, and end May 23. Each student is limited to ten class meetings per week (2 subjects). Each student must attend chapel which takes place on Wednesdays.

A reminder that in order to graduate and receive a diploma from Brazosport Christian School, one must earn 26 credits through the school.

Contact BCS for application. www.1bcs.org, or 979-297-0563, or email [email protected]
