General Information
Description of ProgramOffers a collaborative program that provides students (grades 6-12) with a broad range of services designed to increase motivation and ability to complete secondary school and seek entry into post-secondary education and/or meaningful employment. Students must be enrolled in one of the four participating high schools: Hempstead, Uniondale, Roosevelt or Rockville Centre. Interested students must meet with their LPP High School Coordinator to discuss eligibility requirements. Sample programs include: The Saturday Scholars Academy which is designed to provide students with supplemental academic support leading to completion of high school. An array of preparatory classes, workshops, symposiums and college tours are available to students. The Saturday Scholars Academy consists of classes on Saturdays and weekdays on the campus of Hofstra University. Workshops, symposiums and classes are also made available at the partner school sites. The Summer Programs include the Interactive Summer Programs and the Summer Scholars Academy. The Interactive Summer program enrolls LPP participants in internships and classes, during the summer, to explore different careers, through connecting theory and practice. The primary emphasis is on student learning through hands-on experiences. Thematic educational trips, connected to internships, are scheduled throughout the summer, to further enhance learning as well as provide career exposure external to the classroom. The trips also provide information on how the discipline is applied in the real world. Lunch is typically provided throughout the week. The Summer Scholars Academy is designed to expose students to careers in science and technology as well as fields that require pre-licensure, through 4-5 week hands-on thematic internships. Classes usually start after the 4th of July weekend and are held on the campus of Hofstra University. Students may participate in hands-on, thematic internships in areas including: Health Career Exploration; Film Production; Forensic Science; Law; Robotics; Architecture; Food Chemistry and Careers in Earth Science. The Parent Involvement in Education program facilitates student success through collaborative parent committees. Parents of program participants are encouraged to participate on one of two committees, designed to ensure that program goals and objectives are met: The Academic Committee and Student Programming Committee.
