Summer Study Skills

We encourage all new STA students, grades 6-10, to attend one of the Bridge to STA: Study Skills courses; this is a great way for the incoming student to learn about the Academy, meet fellow classmates, and help with the expectations of school work. 

We offer writing skills summer courses for grades 7-10 (grade 6 on a case-by-case basis). Participants will learn modes of pre-college writing and study brainstorming, organizing an essay, revising work, and increasing overall clarity in writing.

We also offer a reading comprehension class for grades 6-9, and various college prep classes for applications and essays.
