Crystal Springs Uplands School is a proud partner of Peninsula Bridge
, a non-profit, educational access program which supports student from 5th grade through college.
For nearly twenty years, Crystal has hosted Peninsula Bridge’s summer academic program. This five-week program, brings 60 rising seventh and eighth grade students from the San Mateo-Foster City school district to our campus to engage in dynamic and challenging Math, Language Arts, and Science courses. Students also take electives that range from coding to improv, work in small advisory groups, and venture out on college and career-focused field trips.
In addition to working with highly-qualified professional teachers from local public and independent schools, Peninsula Bridge students spend their days with a dynamic group of high-school and college aged teaching assistants. Peninsula Bridge’s TA model allows students to connect personally with role models who make learning both fun and cool. Many of our TAs are CSUS students, many of whom return year after year to continue making connections and providing inspiration for our Bridge scholars.
