    Please Note: 

    Transportation is available to students living in pre-determined boundaries from their Power Up Summer Program host sites. The Atlanta Public Schools transportation policy dictates that bus stops are placed outside the shortest 1 mile navigation of elementary schools, and 1½ mile navigation of middle and high schools.  Students living less than the 1 mile or 1 ½ mile boundaries are assigned to the walk-zone. Read important walking safety tips here.

    Level Up Middle School Math Academy [Hosted at Sutton Middle School - Northside Dr. Campus]

    The goal of the Level-Up Academy is to provide access to higher-level mathematics course work by providing time in the summer for engagement with pre-requisite content standards. Exposure to this program will provide rising 7th and 8th grade students with content-focused engagement around transitional standards in preparation for participation in either Accelerated Math 7B/8 or Algebra I. This program will be aimed at mending content gaps and building supports to prepare students for successful matriculation through the accelerated pathway mathematics. The curriculum will incorporate a learning model that hinges on building conceptual understanding using multiple representations.

    SMSEA Camp for High School Students [Hosted at Jackson High School]

    The goal of the Science and Math Summer Enrichment Academy (SMSEA), is to provide access to higher-level mathematics and science course work at the secondary level as students complete one math or science core course for a full high school credit during the summer. This design ensures additional flexibility during the regular school year where students can gain access to Advanced Placement classes in their preferred program of study. Through student-centered instruction, which integrates gifted strategies with hands-on activities for 3-Dimensional learning, students will engage in a rigorous learning environment where they can demonstrate mastery of mathematics and science standards.
