Description: This is a rigorous course designed to complete a year-long Algebra 1 class during our 5 week summer school. Thus the students are taught at an accelerated pace and should expect to have a minimum of 1 hour of homework each night. In order to be successful in this course, students need a strong background in Pre-Algebra and a consistent work ethic. Be aware that the course is not an introduction to Algebra 1. SAEP does offer a class designed as a preview course through the enrichment program. If your child needs to complete just one semester of this course, you may register for just that one semester. However, there is no fee reduction. Also, if your child only needs to take the second semester, we recommend that they attend the first semester as well to help prepare them for the second.
