Summer Scholars

Take advantage of our Summer Scholars program where both public and private school students in elementary, middle, and high school have an opportunity to enrich their summer with learning experiences in Reading, Mathematics, Foreign Language, Writing, and Language Arts within a challenging and supportive environment. Summer Scholars offers students the ability to advance academically by earning extra credits during the summer, make-up academic credits, or simply enter the next grade with confidence through various refresher courses. Our faculty understands that every child learns in his or her own way, so they continually develop instructional approaches to reach every learner.

NSU University School students will also focus on logistical concerns such as building layout, how to navigate transitions between classes, and using lockers and textbooks.

Math Enrichment for Rising 6th Grade Students

This Math Enrichment Course provides opportunities for review and reinforcement of math skills for students entering 6th grade. Topics such as long division, fractions, applied problem solving, and measurement are covered in this course.

Strategic Learning

This five-week program will prepare students for the increased reading demands of Middle School. It will teach them a program titled "Structure your Reading" that is designed to provide students with a strategic approach to reading large quantities of material. Students will learn mnemonics that will prompt them to preview material, use thought-provoking strategies to make sense of what they read, and follow up with strategies designed to help them understand and remember what they read. Students will set goals, monitor their progress, and receive support while working on their assigned summer reading. Students will apply the strategies they are learning as they read their social studies and science textbooks. In addition, writing assignments will be incorporated to prepare them for summarizing important information, taking notes, and organizing schedules and assignments. The focus of this summer program is to help students learn how to learn.

Reading and Writing Strategies

This one-week workshop will equip students in grades 6-8 with tools and ideas for the increased reading and writing expectations of Middle School. It will focus on polishing a student’s ability to read and write effectively, using one of the Summer Reading Assignments. Students will review concepts about reading, annotating, and responding to literature according to what is developmentally appropriate for each grade. Students will set goals, monitor their progress, and receive support while working on their assigned summer reading. Each student will also receive personalized feedback on his or her writing.

College Preparatory Learning Strategies

Would you like to learn strategies for reading large quantities of materials in an easy and quick manner to prepare you for the demands of college? This course will help you learn and practice pre-reading strategies using science, social studies, and English literature texts. This is followed by applying effective strategies as you read to increase comprehension and memory. Effective note-taking and annotating is taught as a study strategy to use in high school, college, and beyond. You will also learn test-taking techniques to improve your ability to show what you know and earn increased scores. You will be using your required summer reading as you apply the strategies taught in this class. The focus of this class is to learn "how" to learn in less time.

Geometry I

This course is designed to accelerate the student's math track. It will cover the Geometry 1 curriculum in preparation for Algebra 2. As an original credit course, wherein the student has not been exposed to the Geometry 1 curriculum, the student must be on-level or advanced and have completed a pre-algebra curriculum with no less than a 90 average and have a teacher/counselor recommendation.

Honors Geometry

This course focuses on the study of relationships of points, lines, and planes with an emphasis on deductive strategies and formal proofs. Students study congruent segments, triangles, angles and their relationships, line relationships, parallel and perpendicular, properties of polygons and solids, similarity and congruence, Pythagorean Theorem, circles, surface area, volume, transformations, formal logic, and properties applied to real life problems.

Honors Algebra II

This course is designed as a rigorous, in-depth continuation of the algebraic concepts introduced in Algebra 1. A heavy emphasis is placed on the development of analytical thinking and mathematical proof. The course begins with a review and then an expansion of linear functions. Topics covered in-depth include quadratic functions, quadratic equations, rational expressions, factoring, conic sections, systems of equations, and complex numbers. Students examine properties, applications, and graphs of absolute value, exponential, logarithmic, power, and radical functions. Students use algebraic concepts in real life applications.

Algebra I Review

This is a 20-hour, non-credit class conducted over the course of five days. The intent of the course is to sharpen the Algebra skills for those students who have already taken Algebra 1. General concepts reviewed will be Linear Equations, Properties of Exponents, Real Numbers, Factoring, and Radical Expressions.
