This two-week course is designed as a review of the essential pre-algebra skills that students need to be successful in the college preparatory level of Algebra 1. The course will include a study of integers, variables, expressions, equations, ratios, proportions, order of operations, fractions, decimals, graphing concepts, and inequalities. We will look at some of this material using a hands-on approach, and the use of manipulatives. Through this class students will gain knowledge of important critical thinking tools, mathematical study skills and learning strategies, to be successful in the high school classroom. The course will help serve as an introduction to some of the Algebra skills and students will see during their freshman year of high school. Time: 2 1/2 hours per day, 10 days total. Maximum number of students: 12
Dates: August 13-August 24
Cost: $200 (STA enrolled), $275 (non-STA enrolled).
This course is designed for the highly motivated student with excellent math skills planning to take AP Calculus or a rigorous college calculus course.
A graphing calculator (TI-83 or newer) or online graphing tool is required as is the purchase of access to an online program called Pearson MyMathLab.
Course dates: This is a hybrid course that is mostly online with 4 meeting times (approximately 1.5-2 hours each). The meeting dates will occur in the following weeks:
Week of June 18th (one day for an introduction to course and MyMathLab tutorial)
Week of June 25th (one day for a week 2 check-in)
Week of July 16th (one day for the midterm exam)
Week of August 13th (one day for the final exam)
Note: If a student has a conflict with one of the meeting dates then an alternative meeting time may be scheduled if approved by Mrs. Spaulding in advance.
Course costs: Total cost per student is $400: $295/student to STA and an additional $103 to purchase the required online software.
NOTE: Placement in this course is for students who have successfully completed Algebra II Honors, or who have a very strong recommendation and approval of the Algebra II CP instructor. If taken the summer between sophomore and junior year, students must also be enrolled in Calculus AB or Calculus Honors for the following school year. If taken between junior and senior year, students may choose to replace Calculus with AP Statistics the following year.
Honors Geometry is an accelerated course that provides a thorough examination of plane, solid, and coordinate geometry. Mastery of Algebra I is essential, as these skills enhance many of the abstract concepts presented and provide numerous opportunities for justification, analysis, and applications.
Fees for the course cover instructor, technology and facilities costs. Students will have access to Geometer's Sketchpad, a mathematics software program that supports discovery-based learning, as well as ample supplies for hand sketches, drawings and graphs.
Dates: Tuesday, June 19th to Thursday, August 9th (*Please note that this class will not meet during the week of July 4th.)
Times: Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays, 9:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.
Cost: $750/student, payable before starting the class
NOTE: Placement in this course is for students who have successfully completed Algebra I Honors, or who have a very strong recommendation and approval of the Algebra I CP instructor, and who are enrolled in Algebra II honors for the following school year
Nursing Assistant Training Program (NAT)
This program is particularly advantageous to students when who wish to apply to college nursing programs.
The NAT Program meets the New Hampshire and Vermont Board of Nursing requirements for Nurse Assistant training. All classes are taught by highly experienced and professional nurses with a small student to instructor ratio to provide quality training. The expectation of excellence is high within our fast-paced and focused NAT Program. We train our students to provide compassionate care for people within the health care system.
Through lecture, video, role-playing, and hands-on laboratory and clinical practice, students learn procedural skills such as bathing, dressing, positioning, and vital signs. Students will also learn key communication techniques through life skills training including resume workshop and interview preparation to prepare students for employment after graduation. After students graduate the NAT Program, they are eligible to sit for State Board Exam to become a Licensed Nurse Assistant (LNA).
Dates and Cost: TBA
*Please note that for all Summer Academic Courses and Programs, payment must be received prior to the first day of class and facilitation of the course/program is dependent upon sufficient enrollment.
