Forty high school seniors from South Jersey will participate at Rutgers–Camden for three weeks as part of the Aim High Academy (AHA), a free summer residential program that will prepare and motivate the student participants to attend and succeed in college.
Students will move in to the Rutgers–Camden dormitories on July 7th and enter into the college experience. They will begin a rigorous academic and college readiness schedule. The daily program will include college-level writing and math/science courses, two hours of SAT preparation and a “College 101” seminar plus study time.
Students will also participate in four college visits to schools in locations to be decided. Last year they visited Central Jersey, New Brunswick, Philadelphia, and Washington D.C.. On Saturdays, students will attend Team Odyssey activities at Fairmont Park in Philadelphia to build teamwork and also unwind after a demanding week.
The Aim High Academy’s three-week program will conclude with graduation on Friday, July 26th.
