2022 Friar Readiness Program

JUNE 6-16, 2022
Week 1: June 6-10 | Week 2: June 13-16
 
Get ready to make the jump to high school with the Friar Readiness Program. This new summer program is designed to ease the transition to high school and prepare students for academic success. The Friar Readiness Program is designed for students who have been identified by test results and educational record to have a need for the support of the Essentials Math and/or English classes at Bishop Lynch. The Admissions Committee will require these accepted students to complete the program’s course(s) to assist with their preparedness for their freshman year. A placement test will be given on the final day of the Friar Readiness Program to validate math and/or English course placement for the fall semester.

Besides the math and English subject instruction, each course will include assistance with BL’s Blackboard student management system. This summer tech help will be instrumental in giving students the preparedness – and the confidence – to succeed.

Students will be required to bring a laptop each day.

CLASS SCHEDULE:
Session I: 8:30 AM -10 AM
Session II: 10:30 AM - 12 PM

Classes will be held in person and all BL Covid-19 health and safety protocols will be followed. Students will be required to attend all 9 days of class to ensure their course placement status to BL in the fall.

Each class is 1.5 hours in length. The classes are taught by Bishop Lynch faculty members. The tuition for the program is $200 for one course and $300 for both.

SUMMER MATH 2022

The Summer Math Assignments are great ways to review math skills students have gained in previous math courses, as well as prepare them for the work ahead of them. Students are required to complete the Summer Math Assignment that corresponds to the course they are enrolled in for the fall semester. Summer Math Assignments will be due on the second day of classes, August 11 &12. Please direct any questions to kate.see@bishoplynch.org.


SUMMER READING 2022

While there will not be an official common book required for each grade level, below is a recommended book list that we encourage students to explore over the course of the summer. These high-interest books provide valuable literary merit and promote the continuation of vocabulary expansion and reading comprehension skills.
