Bloomfield College Hosts Summer Program for Eagle Academy for Young Men of Newark

Bloomfield College Eagle Academy for Men of Newark
 
Test prep for college entrance exams is a key factor in improving a student’s chances of being accepted into his/her first-choice college or university. According to the College Board, college entrance exams, such as the PSAT and the SAT, measure a student’s skills and also help colleges evaluate if a student is ready for college-level work. Becoming familiar with these tests and learning the tips and strategies associated with them can result in higher test scores and ultimately, merit scholarships for high school students.         
 
Rising freshman and sophomore students from Eagle Academy for Young Men of Newark had the opportunity to participate in PSAT and SAT prep programs this summer through Eagle Academy’s 2017 Summer Programs at Bloomfield College. Opened in September 2012, the Eagle Academy for Young Men of Newark is the first all-male public school in the state of New Jersey. This school is a collaboration between the Newark Public Schools and the Eagle Academy Foundation. Eagle Academy Newark is a school environment that provides urban young men with structured learning experiences designed to meet their needs as adolescents growing up in urban settings. 
 
Thirty Eagle Academy scholars participated in the programs which ran from June 19 through June 29, 2017. The programs, which were led by Bloomfield College professors and staff, increased the students’ knowledge of the PSAT and SAT tests, study skills, and test taking strategies. Guest speakers for the programs included Bloomfield College representatives from financial aid, career development, athletics, health and wellness, and personal counseling.
 
Additionally, professors held information sessions and tours for the students. Professor Esther Dillard spoke about the College’s broadcast journalism program, while showing them around the television and radio studio on campus.  Bloomfield College student researchers provided the Eagle Academy students with a tour of the motion capture studio and Yuichiro Nishizawa, chair of the Creative Arts & Technology Division took students on a tour of the Center for Technology + Creativity.
 
“We are delighted that we are now in our second year of working with the students from Eagle Academy,” said Dr. Tresmaine Grimes, Vice President of Academic Affairs and Dean of Faculty. “We have developed strong bonds with these students and would be thrilled to have them enroll at Bloomfield College upon their graduation from high school in 2019.”
 
The programs, which were of no cost to students, were funded through a grant from the Predominantly Black Institutions Competitive Grant Program.
