UTILIZING  AN INQUIRY BASED 
LEARNING APPROACH

GIVING MOTIVATED STUDENTS THE TOOLS THEY NEED TO SUCCEED

OUR PROGRAM HAS THREE MAIN COMPONENTS
SUMMER PROGRAM

Our Summer session is the driving force behind our program.  It is a six week intensive where students engage with math, science, language arts, and wellness curriculum.

SATURDAY SESSIONS

Our Saturday sessions ensure that students continue to have all of the tools they need to be successful once they return back to their home school.  Saturday tutoring sessions that occur during the school year.

PARENT SUPPORT 

We offer year-round parent education, focusing on child development and financial literacy. Participation in our parent enrichment program is a prerequisite for students to continue in the program. 

LEARNING & GROWING WHILE HAVING FUN
SCIENCE • TECHNOLOGY • ENGINEERING • MATH​​
EXPERIENTIAL FOCUSED CURRICULUM

 The Summer Institute's curriculum has a STEM focus (science, technology, engineering and math) and is designed to propel students into a data tested, 21st century model that nurtures students natural inclination towards curiosity and questioning. Our students don't learn by lecture. They learn by doing, developing their own questions and presenting their findings.  Learning is collaborative and project-based; kids work closely together in a hands-on way to solve real-world problems.

OUR MISSION

There is an inequality in the education and economic outcomes by students in under-served communities. The Summer Institute aims to change the equation and the narrative it creates by equipping low income students from Houston’s 3rd Ward with the necessary resources to compete in today's educational landscape. The purpose of the Summer Institute is to leverage the resources of a flourishing and celebrated learning institution and make a positive impact on students trajectory through a hands-on, STEM focused inquiry based instructional model, exceptionally low student to teacher ratios, tutoring services, and a comprehensive wellness program that includes life and study skills instruction, mentorship opportunities and intentional character development. 

OUR VISION

Our goal is to not only develop this program to best serve our local community but also to package the program so that other entities interested in helping to empower underserved students in their surrounding communities would have the curriculum, program design and support to do the same.
