SUMMER COLLEGE READINESS ACADEMY

The Summer College Readiness Academy is coming back to New Tech High in the Summer of 2017. Every student in the academy takes a challenging math or humanities course to prepare for the fall 2017 academic year.  This program also provides individual tutoring and pre-college advising to all participants. New Tech High and Napa High have partnered for this year’s SCRA! This year’s SCRA runs from Tuesday, June 20th through Thursday, July 20th (July 3rd & 4th are holidays) from 8:30 – 12:30 pm at New Tech High.
