Summer Highlights


In an effort to prepare Brooklyn College Educational Talent Search participants to be stronger academically, this summer’s theme is Building On Foundations.  Our hope is to encourage and empower all students to master the academic foundations they will need to be successful in academic year 2014 – 2015.

From July 1, 2014 to August 7, 2014, the program will be offered following a 9:30AM - 3:30PM, Monday through Thursday schedule.  Lunch will be provided. Students are required to provide their own transportation to-and-from Brooklyn College.

Ideally for students entering the 9th grade through entering the 10th grade. If you do not match this criterion, but would like to participate, please contact your ETS Pre-College Counselor.

Courses will consist of:
1. TED Talks: Elements of Grammar and Writing
2. Math Foundations
3. The Money Ride

Students will also be exposed to workshops such as:
1. Skill Building
