Students celebrate a summer well spent

ALearn, a non-profit organization committed to preparing underserved students for high school and raising their aspirations for college, has scheduled an End of Program event 6-8 p.m. Thursday in the Los Altos High School cafeteria.

“It’s a rich community celebration of those students who have worked hard on their studies all summer, and most of whom will move into a higher level of math as a result,” said Kathryn Hanson, CEO and founder of ALearn. “Even more important, they are launched on the path to college and college-prep work.”

In the fourth year of its Catalyst to High School Program, ALearn will recognize the work of the 70 students and their teachers and teaching assistants who participated in the summer program. The students will enter Mountain View or Los Altos high school in the fall as freshmen. Most of them will be in a higher-level math class as a result of ALearn’s Math Acceleration Program.

It is an intensive summer enrichment program to increase math competency and students’ confidence to succeed in pre-algebra. A tour for students in the Math Acceleration Program is scheduled 10-11:30 a.m. Thursday at Davis Intermediate School in San Jose.
