Summer Enrichment Program

A TIME TO SUCCEED! 
The Summer Enrichment Program at Bishop Lynch is designed for those students who have been identified by their ISEE test results and educational record to have a need for additional preparation before entering high school-level Math and/or English. The curriculum is focused on identifying problem areas that need to be addressed. If not corrected, these issues may cause a student to have a difficult freshman year. If your child has a weaker ability in Math and/or English skills, the Admissions Committee will require that your student successfully complete the Summer Enrichment Program, with an average of at least a 75%, in order to be admitted to the freshman class. Summer Enrichment is used as a tool to aid in placement for courses in the fall. 

Classroom textbooks are provided.

  • Admission Decisions

    At the end of the Summer Enrichment Program, the Admissions Committee will meet with the teachers and administrators involved in the program to assess each student’s progress. Based on the student’s performance, one of the following decisions will be made:
    1. The applicant was very successful, maintaining an average of 90% or better for the entire course of the program. That student may be recommended for regular level classes.

    2. The applicant continues to need the support of a slower pace and would benefit from placement in essentials level Math and/or English.

    3. The applicant has not shown that he/she has the ability, effort and/or citizenship needed to succeed at Bishop Lynch and will not be offered admission.
