A Day In Life At The Upward Bound Math and Science Summer Academy
While at the summer Academy, students will spend the month of June on the lovely campus of Northern Arizona University. The students will be in class from 8:00-4:30 Monday through Saturday and depending on their academic year they will be in Math, Science and English courses taught by college and high school academic professionals. During the evening and weekends students will be able to participate in a variety of activities under the supervisor of the Summer Leaders who reside in the dorms with them. A schedule may look like the following, although certain changes are made every year to better accommodate student's needs:
During the month the students will be participating in scholarship, college entrance test prep, school skills and other important workshops and presentations. They will also be able to go on field trips to heighten interest in math and science careers.
The Academy is free to all participants with room and meal plans included. UBMS provides access to laptops and school supplies for the students to use as part of their academic experience. They will room with other students from other UBMS high schools in Northern Arizona and have the chance to make life long friendships.
The rising senior class will also be eligible to go on a College Tour after the academy is complete to visit college campuses that have focused degrees in math and science.
