For three weeks this summer, rising CSFP eighth graders and recently-graduated CSFP alumni entering ninth grade are receiving additional academic support at our Math and Writing tutorials. Over forty-five children are attending the six-session tutorial. Four area teachers are conducting sessions focused on strengthening skills in Math and Writing so that CSFP alumni have a smoother transition into high school. This year, CSFP added an additional component to the tutorial. PhillyGoes2College, in partnership with CSFP, hosted a session on essay writing for high school and college applications.
CSFP developed the Math and Writing tutorials after its longitudinal program evaluation showed that our students could benefit from additional support to better adjust to the academic rigors of high school. Now in its 9th year, this program has proven to be popular and appreciated by both our students and parents. We want to thank Friends Select School for again hosting the workshop this summer. Stay tuned for pictures of the tutorial, coming to our Facebook soon!
