ALearn December 2016 Newsletter
2016 Program Results
We are excited about our 2016 results. ALearn helped over 1,350 students get math strong, college ready - which brings us to a total of 9,200 students since 2007! Notably, 62% of our summer Catalyst High School students taking Algebra 1 advanced to Geometry in their freshman year, which is a pass rate 150% higher than during the school year.
While our purpose is to prepare students from underserved backgrounds for success in college and beyond, our impact goes beyond just ALearn students. The 108 educators, who train with ALearn and teach our students, go on to impact over 7,500 more students during the school year. We are combatting the California teacher shortage by building a pipeline of future teachers, with 57% of our teaching assistants aspiring to become teachers, and are now teaching at East Side Union High School District, Sunnyvale, Cupertino and Fremont school districts.
"This program provided me with many more resources to incorporate into my classroom as well as different teaching strategies that I'm very certain will prove to be useful. I also grew as a teacher in regards to working alongside a peer and figuring out new ideas of how to approach student needs."
