MOC 2024 Summer Algebra Institute


Maranatha Outreach Center has partnered with California State University(CSU) for 11 years to bring Summer Algebra Institute (SAI) to rising 8-12 graders of color.

CSU Summer Algebra Institute (SAI), is a FREE five week study designed by California State University to improve college readiness in the area of mathematics. This is a limited opportunity for a select number of students and we are the only host site in the Silicon Valley area. The Summer Algebra Institute program aligns with CSU’s ambitious Graduation Initiative 2025 goals that aim to increase graduation rates for all CSU students while eliminating equity gaps. We are pleased to partner with CSU to bring this amazing summer program to families in our community.

The primary goal of the program is to positively improve college readiness, particularly in mathematics and quantitative reasoning ability. Credentialed math instructors will teach the course content using EdReady curriculum, an adaptive online application for math readiness that designs a personalized learning path to fill students’ knowledge gaps. In addition, students will participate in team learning activities, interactive STEAM
activities, “college knowledge” workshops and attend a CSU campus tour.

CSU Summer Algebra Institute registration is now open. You may register a student at the link above. Space is limited to 60 students. This years program will be held at the location and time below:
