Summer Academy 2013

During our annual IHAD Summer Academy,  our rising 10th and 11th graders (and one senior Jamee :-)) spent 20 days on the MDC Wolfson campus participating in ACT Math, ACT Language Strategies, and Reading/Vocabulary sessions.  In addition, all of our Dreamers who wanted to, were given paid apprenticeships.  This allowed them an opportunity to learn while they earn!!  Finally, we capped off our academy with an overnight trip to Tampa, FL. and the University of South Florida.  There, we were taken on a guided tour of the campus by current USF staff and students.  As always, our Dreamers were very attentive, taking copious notes and asking great questions.  On top of all that, we even had time to stop in St. Petersburg on the way back to Miami and visit the Salvador Dali Museum.  Special Thanks to Kaleena Waters our outgoing VISTA, what can I say, You are absolutely amazing!  Thanks to our dedicated IHAD Summer Staff: Mr. Major, Mr. Boldon, and Mrs. Richardson for keeping our Dreamers focused.  Thanks to MDC Wolfson Staff (especially Josh Young, Tamika Ramos, and Tom Albano.  Thanks to The Children's Trust, without your continued support, we would truely be lost.  Most of All, THANKS to the incredibly devoted Dreamers and Parents who through it all (even the rain) make time, NOT EXCUSES.. See you Aug. 19th.
