About this event

WHSAD's annual summer bridge program is designed to introduce incoming freshmen to the basic skill sets needed to perform efficiently in their CTE classes and Work-based learning projects.

Students may enroll in a minimum of 1 or a maximum of all 6-week sessions at a first come first serve basis. Students may also register for sessions I & II on any given day or choose full weekly sessions tickets.
