    2024 A2I Summer Acceleration Mathematics Program

    What Is the Purpose of this Program?

    The Advanced Academic Immersion (A2I) Summer Acceleration Program is designed to prepare students for entry into a rigorous course of study that affords ALL mathematics students the opportunity to accelerate their learning. A2I enables students to develop critical thinking and problem-solving skills essential to success in Advanced Placement (AP) and college courses.

     What is required to enter the program?

    • Be enrolled in high school for the Fall of 2024 (Spring 2024 students in grades 8 - 11 are eligible)
    • Successful completion of pre-requisite courses
    • Passing score on appropriate A2I-designed pre-test

    What are the course requirements?

    • Attend the course for 100 hours (five hours a day for 20 days). No more than two absences allowed.  More than two absences will be cause for dismissal from the program.  Special permission to miss more than two days may be obtained through Kenyail Carr prior to the beginning of the program.  Students may not miss the first or last week of the program and must be present to take the post-test.   
    • At the end of the course, students must have completed all weekly assessments and successfully completed the post-test with a grade of 80 or higher in order to receive credit for the course.

    What courses are being offered?

    • Students can select one of the following courses: Honors Algebra 1, Honors Geometry, Honors Algebra 2, Honors Precalculus

     How will A²I course grades be calculated?

    • Students will earn a grade on their transcript based on the grades of the pre-test, weekly assessments and post-test. Percentages are as follows: 
      • Pre-test – 5% 
      • Weekly assessment average – 5% 
      • Post-test – 90%
    • Grades will not be calculated into student’s GPA. 

     How will the STAAR EOC exams be addressed?

    • Any student taking Algebra 1 is required to score successfully on the STAAR End-of- Course exam for Algebra 1 to meet graduation requirements.
    • Students who earn Algebra 1 credit in the summer course through A2I, will take their EOC exam in late fall, which is well after the completion of the course.
    • Tutorial and refresher sessions will be scheduled to help students be successful on the EOC exam.
    • Note: Changes in this policy may be made as the Texas Education Agency (TEA) posts new policy.

     What is the Cost?

    Summer Acceleration Program courses are offered at no cost to Fort Worth ISD students.  Transportation will be provided. Breakfast and Lunch will be provided as well.
