STEM Summer programs at USC help prepare underrepresented students for college

The South Central Scholars Summer Academy at USC was featured by the Los Angeles Times  on Sunday, August 7, 2016.

The seven-week college-prep program targets promising high school seniors and college freshman with instruction in precalculus or calculus as well as English, in addition to professional development and mentoring. Freshman can also opt for chemistry, computer science and quantitative reasoning.

The courses — a mix of interactive lectures and small-group workshops — are taught by USC faculty on campus and mirror the curriculum and rigor of freshmen classes, but with more support. More here.
