Our summer academy runs five days a week for five weeks from early July until the end of the first week of August. Beginning daily at 7:30 AM, approximately 50 students gather at The Reggie Lewis Center in Roxbury and are greeted by 3Point staff. Our students are then transported by bus to the Fessenden School campus in Newton. During the morning, students participate in a Jr. Shark Tank program, learning about entrepreneurship, preparing business plans, designing and fabricating products, and presenting their products to a panel of investors. Lunch is provided in the school dining hall and the afternoon includes swimming, computer design, ropes courses, dance, and basketball. The morning curriculum is cognitively demanding, requiring students to do research, analyze, organize new bodies of information, and engage problem solving honing math and writing skills. The afternoon curriculum aligns with the Boston Public Schools’ standards for fostering social-emotional growth.
