In 2012, LMC piloted a four-week summer career academy, designed to prepare incoming students for a comprehensive college experience that focuses on academic, career and social success. The curriculum included math, critical thinking and a variety of college seminars. Students visited 4-year colleges and local industries, including Kaiser, Dow, and a Fire Station. Students had the opportunity to explore careers, develop interpersonal skills, learn how to navigate through the college system, and participate in academic activities that revealed successful strategies for social connectedness and academic preparedness. LMC looks forward to providing this opportunity in Summer 2013, so look for the announcements in Spring 2013.
The 2012 Summer Bridge Program was offered free to participants with the support of LMC’s Hispanic Serving Institutions (HSI) and SB70 Collaborative grants.
