Title:Examining the role of summer bridge programs in promoting college readiness and completion: Lessons learned from Texas' developmental summer bridges
Organization:American Youth Policy Forum
Short Description:Summer bridge programs, designed to provide graduating high school seniors with the academic and college-readiness skills needed to be successful in postsecondary education, have emerged as a promising intervention. This forum described the creation and evaluation of Texas’ developmental summer bridge programs for students in need of remediation.
Annotation:Summer bridge programs, designed to provide graduating high school seniors with the academic and college-readiness skills needed to be successful in postsecondary education, have emerged as a promising intervention. Typically running four-to-six weeks during the summer months, summer bridge programs offer an integrated approach with intensive coursework that may be accompanied by tutoring, additional labs, stipends, and student support services designed to facilitate students’ transition to college and help them prepare for credit-bearing courses in their first semester of college. This forum described the creation and evaluation of Texas’ developmental summer bridge programs for students in need of remediation. Developed by the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board (THECB), the developmental summer bridge model has been funded by the state’s legislature since 2007. The National Center for Postsecondary Research (NCPR), in cooperation with the THECB, has undertaken a large-scale, multi-year evaluation of eight Texas summer bridge sites, with funding from the U.S. Department of Education’s Institute of Education Sciences and Houston Endowment.
