Academic Enrichment Programs
Preparing Students For College And Career Success
EAOP offers students three academic enrichment programs, SAT Academy, Pre-College Academy and EAOP Summer Sessions. All three of these programs offer students a chance to become stronger college applicants and to prepare for the academic rigors of the following school year and beyond.
The Pre-College Academy (PCA) is a six-week summer academic enrichment program for students going into the 10th and 11th grades. PCA students are enrolled in two courses, one in a theme based college writing course and another in math. PCA also includes co-curricular activities that provide students with a chance to build community with other college bound students in the Bay Area.
EAOP partners with UC Berkeley Summer Sessions to offer students the opportunity to enroll in a six-week UC Berkeley course during the summer. EAOP students going into their senior year and who have a 3.5 GPA (weighted) or higher are eligible to apply. Past courses have included Environmental Earth Sciences, Ethnic Studies, and Greek & Roman Mythology.
The SAT Academy prepares students to take the SAT Reasoning Test, an important component of the college admissions process. This ten-week program begins in January and culminates with students taking the March SAT.
