The Bronx Center for Science and Mathematics with the financial support of the Charles Hayden Foundation from 2010-2012 have managed to successfully prepare middle school students for the rigors of a college preparatory high school curriculum and 4-year graduation rates well in excess of the NYC average of 68% through the students participation in a 3-week Hayden Summer Bridge Program. We have historical data to show that we have managed to close the achievement gap between males and females; increase student participation in co-curricular & extracurricular activities; provide emotional, academic and social support to all BCSM students, ultimately resulting in higher promotion rates and 4-year graduation rates (currently BCSM has an average 4-year graduation rate of 88% compared to 68% in NYC and under 60% in the Bronx). As a result of the Hayden Summer Bridge Program in 2010, 2011 and 2012 we are on track to graduate 90% of the 2013 cohort of BCSM scholars in 4-years by August 2013.
