Academic Year

During the academic year component, students will work to improve their skills in math, writing, reading, science and study skills. They will learn and develop critical thinking skills, problem solving, and critical reading skills.

Participants are pre-tested and an IEP (Individual Educational Plan) is designed to meet their prescribed needs. Participants are post-tested at the end of the academic year to measure and document gains.

The participants meet twenty-eight (28) Saturdays during the academic year on the Southern University at Shreveport campus. During the summer component the participants will meet five (5) days a week for six (6) weeks on the Southern University at Shreveport's campus.

Cultural enrichment activities, a career fair, and field trips are a part of the academic and summer sessions.

Certified schoolteachers, college professors and highly qualified professionals are employed to provide these services. These instructors work under the directions of the Director.
