ESI Summer Bridge Program

Research shows that low graduation rates are driven by students who are not prepared for high school and have trouble transitioning to ninth grade. The ESI Summer Bridge Program was an opportunity for academic enrichment and acceleration for incoming freshmen to get a sense of the rigor and standards that are expected of them in high school. In addition to academic support, Summer Bridge focused on academic and personal skills that are essential to promoting a college-going and career-readiness mindset.
