Swope Summer Academic Camp-Upper Room

In 2007, a study by Johns Hopkins University ranked our Summer Academic Program as one of the best summer reading programs in the country. In 1999, we started with one church and 90 students. Today, the Upper Room offers an eight-week summer reading camp for over 2,000 high-poverty children who use the summer to make substantial academic gains. In a district where reading proficiency scores fall consistently below those of neighboring districts, children who participate in the program read as high as two grade levels above their peers.

Breakthrough at Saint Andrew's School

Summerbridge at Saint Andrew’s School provides economically disadvantaged middle school children with access to a rigorous and competitive curriculum.

The student teacher is responsible for writing lesson plans and finding fun and interesting ways to present the material to their classes.

The vision of the Academy is that the graduates will be well-educated, self-assured, spiritual and committed young women who will be leaders who make a difference.

This is the summer program for our incoming fifth graders. The student teaches Team Building and P.E.

Cristo Rey New York High School

Cristo Rey New York High School's (CRNYHS) mission is to provide inner city young men and women of all faiths with a private, college preparatory education that they otherwise would not be able to afford. Located in East Harlem, CRNYHS is one of 26 high schools in the Cristo Rey Network that have been serving America's urban children for more than a decade. Our students work one day a week during the school year in entry level jobs at some of New York's most prestigious companies to cover the majority of their cost of education.

Rosedale Summer Achievement Program

Rosedale Achievement Center works to help young girls improve in school and gain self confidence through various means including tutoring, music enrichment programs, and a summer program. It offers classes that supplement student's work during the school year and help them build and improve basic skills. The SSLP student helps in preparation for the summer program and then teaches, mentors, and builds relationships with the girls once the program begins.

REACH Program at Regis High School

The REACH Program is for middle school boys in the New York City area who are Catholic, academically gifted and talented with leadership potential, and whose families have significant financial need. During the six-week REACH summer program, students take classes at the University of Scranton for three weeks, then return to Regis for three more weeks of class and leadership activities. The SSLP student helps prepare for the camp and then acts as a role-model and camp counselor for their group.
