Elevate [Math] FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions

What are the dates and times of the program?

The program dates/times are specific to each participating school district. For exact details of your school district, please contact your school or district. Typically, the programs run Monday through Friday from 8:00am-12:00pm. Elementary and middle school programs run for 4 weeks. High school programs run for 5 weeks. Most programs start mid-June and run through July.

Where does the program take place?

The program school sites are specific to each participating school district. Usually, they are schools within the district; please contact your school or district for more information.

What topics are covered during this program?

Your student will be introduced to next year’s math concepts in the summer before they enter the next school year, so they will be prepared and comfortable when they see these concepts appear during the school year. We use project and problems based learning where your student is continually engaged with their peers and the instructor.

How much is the program?

Elevate is free for students and their parents!

How are students chosen for Elevate?

Elevate targets students who are “nearly meeting standards.” The school district allocates spaces based on statewide testing scores and teacher recommendations. Please contact your district if you have questions about your student’s eligibility.

Does my student have to attend every session?

Since the Elevate program is only 19 or 24 half-days, it is important that your student attends every session. Any absence will result in your student missing key concepts that will benefit them during the school year. By enrolling your child, you are committing your student to attend the full program.

Does my student need any materials?

Students will be given individual notebooks for use during the program. We suggest bringing pencils (and calculators if they have one).

Is transportation or childcare provided?

Please contact your school or school district for the availability and details of transportation. Elevate does not provide additional childcare or arrange transportation.
