Saturday Academy


Saturday Academy is an important component of the UB program and all participants are required to attend. This is designed to provide supplemental instruction in the core subject areas such as Math, English, Science, Social Studies, and Computer Science. These courses of instruction are facilitated by high school instructors. Students will attend college and career planning classes specifically designed for each grade level.
