Pre-College Math Program

Join us at Edgewood College for a summer program of math enrichment and college preparedness!

In the summer of 2018, fifteen high school students will take an eight-week mathematical problem solving course. Successful students will earn an ongoing $1,000 Edgewood College scholarship and 3 college credits. Additional programming will prepare students for college success through workshops on financial aid, study skills, time management and other success skills.

The class is Edgewood’s Introduction to Problem Solving. It is a highly interactive class which teaches general mathematical problem solving and mathematical thinking skills. Students with a wide variety of high school math backgrounds have found it useful for improving their mathematical abilities. Students who have completed 10th, 11th, or 12th grade and have successfully taken high school algebra or equivalent are eligible.

Students can choose to take the class for credit (and do all the homework and take the same exams that Edgewood College students do), or take the class for enrichment only. In either case, successful completion of the program will entitle you to a $1,000/year scholarship should you later decide to enroll at Edgewood as full time student.

The program will run Mondays and Thursdays from June 11 – August 2.

Students will take Introduction to Problem Solving in the mornings, from 9a-12p. In the afternoon, from 12p-2p, students will have lunch and workshops designed to prepare students for college success.

There are no cost for students. Edgewood College will provide necessary texts as well as bus passes for transportation and lunches on class days.

Students who are low-income, first-generation, or traditionally underrepresented in higher education are strongly encouraged to apply!

Applications are due Friday, April 18, 2018. Please complete the application below to officially be considered for the program.
