Summer Bridge 2019

Summer Bridge for Rising 9th Graders

  • Maynard Jackson High School's 2019 Summer Bridge program is a three-day program designed to help rising 9th graders prepare for a successful first year of high school.  Students will participate in fun and engaging workshop sessions with the goal of fostering a smooth transition to 9th grade.  Over the course of the three days, students will: have the chance to get to know students from other feeder middle schools, meet teachers, become familiar with the building, participate in mini-workshops on organizational and study skills, get an introduction to the core subjects, learn about the expectations of high school, and much more. 

    Summer Bridge will take place at Maynard Jackson High School on Tuesday, July 30 - Thursday, August 1, 2019 from 9:00-2:30. Students MUST register in order to participate.  The deadline for registration is Friday, July 19th.  CLICK HERE to register.  

    On the third day of the program, students will be participating in a fun, group-bonding field trip to Main Event. The majority of the cost will be paid for by APS, however we are asking families to contribute $7 toward the field trip, to help defray some of the cost. We do not want the cost to be a barrier for any students to participate. If you foresee the cost being a problem, please email The $7 can be paid during Summer Bridge via cash or money order.
