Every other month or so we will have a special event instead of regular class. Examples include visiting a lab at a local university or visiting local STEM businesses. We will also have several panels, with opportunities to talk to professionals in different fields about their jobs.
These trips will only be open to BEAM Next students who have consistent attendance.
For 12th grade students: College Prep
Applying to college is a very daunting process but BEAM is here to support you throughout your last year of high school. This class will guide students in solidifying their college list, writing and editing personal essays, completing applications as well as helping you transition from high school to college. (Betty will be instructing)
For 11th grade students: SAT/ACT Prep
By the fall of your senior year, you need the SAT or ACT score you're going to apply to college with. How important is this test score? Colleges will tell you that it's not the only thing they care about, and that's true: they do care about your grades, your essays, etc. But if you want to get into your dream school, and if you want to be considered for a scholarship, you need a test score that stands out. You don't have to be a genius to ace these tests. You do have to know your grammar rules, remember all the little topics from three years of math, and practice your strategies and timing. This class will give you practice tests, a full content review, and all the strategies for maximizing your score.
For 9th and 10th grade students: Life Skills
This class will cover several different topics to help with school and life. Examples include study tips, managing stress, getting organized and using schedules, etc. You'll also get a chance to share with your BEAM friends how your week has been, what has gone well and what struggles you have, and brainstorm together how to improve.
Plus, pick one of the following courses:
