Bridges Summer STEAM Academy, in partnership with CSU
Office of the Chancellor, is designed to improve the student’s math skills and
promote a college-going culture for rising 6th through 12th grade students.
Under this program, we offer the CSU Summer Algebra Institute for rising 8th through
12th grade students.
In addition, the program is designed to increase student’s
knowledge and application of effective learning strategies; increase
preparedness for Algebra and Geometry classes; increase the capacity to pass
the classes with a minimum grade of “B”; and improve student’s self-esteem.
Algebra is considered to be the gateway course as it relates
to college admission and successful completion. Thus, our programs focus on
academic content, study skills, and college exposure through campus field
programs include a college preparation component that consists of academic
counseling and exposure to math-based careers and opportunities in higher
