Elevate [Math] is offered by participating school districts to students who are identified as “nearly meeting standards” based on their prior year’s assessments or teacher recommendations. Rising 3rd – 10th grade students who are selected, are invited to enroll for our Summer Elevate [Math].
Throughout the summer, students will experience a specially developed curriculum to prepare them for their next math class.
The Elevate [Math] curriculum has been proven to be two times more effective than similar intervention programs and has more than doubled the level of algebra readiness among participating students.
Credentialed teachers from Silicon Valley districts deliver a math curriculum that is designed to front-load the material students will see in their upcoming math class.
Teachers also engage students in a growth mindset curriculum designed to challenge students perceptions about math and what they are capable of achieving.
Each class will also learn about College Readiness and the journey to college through weekly lessons, and work with a College Mentor. In 2020, 89% of our students reported that they want to pursue a post secondary degree.
A STEM Presenter will attend one or more classes and offer STEM Career Awareness experiences as a working professional in the fields of science, technology, engineering, or math within the Silicon Valley.
