Tennessee Promise students entering Jackson State Community College this fall are encouraged to attend the Summer Bridge Program. The three-week program is being held at JSCC July 13-31 and is free of charge.
The Summer Bridge Program is a free three-week program designed to help incoming students start school on a more college-ready level, both academically and socially. Each day, students receive 1.5 hours of math instruction, 1.5 hours of reading/writing instruction, and a college success lunch and learn. At the end of the program, students will have a chance to test out of certain developmental courses.
The program runs Monday through Friday from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm daily. Lunch will be provided. Students are expected to attend the full time every day of the program. If a student is unavailable for some of the time, they are not eligible to sign up. If a student only has to improve their test scores in one subject area, they are still required to attend the full time allocated for the Summer Bridge Program.
Space for the Summer Bridge Program is limited and will be given on a first come, first serve basis. This program is for students with sub scores in either Math or English that fall below 19 or 18 respectively.
Students interested in attending this program should complete the application athttps://www.tnachieves.org/bridge-application. The application is due by June 15. For additional information about the program, visit the website at www.tnpromise.gov/bridge .
