Livingston Summer Academy Welcomes Surrounding Communities


LIVINGSTON, NJ — There is still time to enroll for "bridge" and enrichment classes in the Summer Academy presented by Livingston Public Schools.

Bridge classes are for students looking to prepare for Advanced Placement (AP) and honors-inspired bridge courses in math, science and social studies.

Bridge courses are intended for students who would benefit from a preview of the coursework they will encounter in the coming school year. Over the course of the 12-hour, four-day program, key concepts from the initial units of study will be presented so that students are able to familiarize themselves with the topics they will see once the course begins.

Enrichment courses for students in Grades 3-12 are planned in computer coding, robotics, engineering, art principles, photography, college essay writing, personal management and organization, information literacy/research, and more.

These courses have been designed in order to provide students with a taste of content they have wondered about.
