Jose Valdes Summer Math Institute

José Valdés Summer Math Institute

Program Description:
Since 1988, the José Valdés Summer Math Institute has met its challenge to improve the mathematics education landscape in the East San Jose community. The goal of the program is for students to successfully pass Calculus before graduation from high school. Our first step is to prepare them for success in Algebra before entering high school. We accomplish this by having students in grades 6 through 8 attend summer sessions for seven hours a day, four days a week, for seven weeks during the summer. At least two hours of homework are assigned each day. We also attempt to place as many students as possible on college campuses to encourage them to see college as a choice. Each class has a teacher and two assistants to provide as much individual assistance as possible.
