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!!

Federal Student Aid, a part of the U.S. Department of Education, is the largest provider of student financial aid in the nation. At the office of Federal Student Aid, our 1,200 employees help make college education possible for every dedicated mind by providing more than $150 billion in federal grants, loans, and work-study funds each year to more than 15 million students paying for college or career school. We are proud to sponsor millions of American minds pursuing their educational dreams.
Federal Student Aid is responsible for managing the student financial assistance programs authorized under Title IV of the Higher Education Act of 1965. These programs provide grants, loans, and work-study funds to students attending college or career school.
We ensure students and their families can benefit from these programs by:
Informing students and families of the availability of the federal student aid programs and on the process for applying for and receiving aid from those programs;
Developing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSASM) and processing more than 21 million FAFSA submissions each year;
Accurately disbursing, reconciling, and accounting for all federal student aid funds that are delivered to students each year through more than 6,000 colleges and career schools;
Managing the outstanding federal student loan portfolio and securing repayment from federal student loan borrowers;
Offering free assistance to students, parents, and borrowers throughout the entire financial aid process; and
Providing oversight and monitoring of all program participants—schools, financial entities, and students— to ensure compliance with the laws, regulations, and policies governing the federal student aid programs.
