As we continue to the summer and the weather heats up, we are well underway with numerous summer learning opportunities in Birmingham City Schools.
Some of those offerings include the longstanding Camp Birmingham, a partnership between the city of Birmingham and the school system.
Other newer programs include Breakthrough Collaborative, another partnership between BCS and UAB. Located in 25 cities across the nation and abroad, Breakthrough Collaborative launches motivated middle-school students on the path to college and prepares older students for careers in education.
Other outcomes include increasing academic opportunity for highly motivated, under-served students and put them on the trajectory of a successful college path and inspiring and developing the next generation of teachers and educational leaders.
Breakthrough is working with sixth-graders from Hayes K-8, Huffman Middle, Phillips Academy, Putnam Middle and Wilkerson Middle.
We appreciate all of our partnerships, as we strive to improve educational opportunities for our students and ensure a brighter future for our community.
