The Summer Camp & High School Bridge Program is the centerpiece of the Math Corps and serves students in grades 7-12. During camp middle and high school students come together with college students and mathematicians in a university setting to share in the learning of mathematics. Students learn from older students who serve as role models and they teach younger students who look up to them in the same way. Students receive math instruction in both the basics and advanced topics, while being immersed in an environment of support and achievement.
Most importantly, the Math Corps offers students a vision of the world that begins with the message of “Be Yourself” – as there is greatness within! We build a sense of family and community based on the values of kindness and integrity. Math Corps espouses the power of courage, and asks no less of middle and high school kids than to change the world. As a “lifetime” program, where students return year after year from seventh grade through college, the Math Corps is a social system, complete with its own culture and serving as a force for change in each city we work in.
