Brazosport College offering Mathematics Bridge Academy

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!!
