Black Youth Leadership Project (BYLP) invites students to apply for its 19th Annual Legislative Open House for California’s high school students will be held March 16, 2018 at the State Capitol in Sacramento, California.  This event is FREE and will start at 8am and conclude at 5pm
Since its first class of “Legislators”, Black Youth Legislative Project’s Legislative Open House (LOH) has always been a highly anticipated event, partly due to the valuable experiential learning that occurs paired with the Capitol access that’s provided to only some of the most special of outside visitors. Some students attending the Legislative Open House will be stepping foot into the Capitol Building for the first time ever. By functioning to extend knowledge of policy issues and policy-making through a combination of experiential and academic education, participants will gain firsthand experience in many aspects of the Legislative process including: Policy Development & Implementation, Public Speaking and Executive-Legislative Relations.


The LOH is open to high school students grades (9-12) throughout California. Our participants have the unique opportunity to not only visit the state Capitol but also learn firsthand about the legislative process through mock committee hearings in actual committee rooms in the Capitol and a mock session on the floor of the State Senate (seniors) or the State Assembly (freshmen, sophomores and juniors). Supported by Capitol Community volunteers and legislative staff, participants are coached through each phase of the Legislative process and given an opportunity to meet and greet elected officials as they stop by during the day to observe. Additionally students are presented with valuable information regarding college, financial aid and professional careers. 


See Mrs. Chainey in Room S3 if you are interested in applying. 


Must be 16 and may not be on Academic Probation. 


Deadline: 2/23/18



PROGRAM DATES: July 8th - 28th

32nd Summer Session / July 7 - August 3, 2018

The California State Summer School for the Arts (CSSSA) is a rigorous pre-professional training program in the visual and performing arts, creative writing, animation, and film for talented artists of high school age. CSSSA provides a supportive environment in which students hone acquired skills and explore new techniques and ideas for an intense and exciting learning experience. The School was created by the California Legislature, held its first session in 1987 and will conduct its 32nd session in 2018. Its purpose is to provide a training ground for future artists who wish to pursue careers in the arts and entertainment industries in California. The California State Summer School for the Arts is a state agency funded through a unique public-private partnership.


Students apply for the opportunity to study in one of the School’s seven departments. They may receive 3 units of California State University elective credit for successful participation.


Who is eligible?

California residents enrolled in grades 9 through 12 are eligible to apply to CSSSA. Students from outside of California may also apply; a limited number are admitted each year. Participants are selected in the spring on the basis of their talent and creativity as demonstrated through assignments and teacher recommendations. CSSSA’s student body is representative of the ethnic and socioeconomic diversity of the state. The admissions process is highly competitive; in 2017 fewer than half of all applicants were accepted in each department. Students who complete the four-week program are named California Arts Scholars.

Summer Mathematics Research Training High School Camp

2018 SMaRT Camp June 17th - 30th.

Deadline: March 20 (postmarked)


SMaRT is a two-week summer program at Texas A&M University. It is intended to facilitate interest in mathematics of advanced high school students. High school students of age 14-18, who are US citizens or permanent residents, are eligible to apply.


The camp will provide an intensive learning environment in mathematics, where high school students will learn not only useful mathematical facts, but also how to approach mathematical problems, prove mathematical statements, and write the results.


Eligibility High school students (grades 8 through 12 in Spring) of age 14 through 18 are eligible. US citizenship or permanent residency is required.


Capacity The camp is small. In 2009 through 2017, 20 new and up to 8 returning students were admitted yearly. Undergraduate counselors are assigned to each group of five students.


Topics The main topics to be considered for the new class will revolve, as in the previous years, around number theory, combinatorics, and algebra. Some important applications will also be addressed, e.g. coding and logical circuits. More advanced topics are offered to the returning students.


Structure of the program Each morning, except Sunday, a lecture will be given for the new class, which will introduce students to a variety of interrelated topics of number theory, algebra, combinatorics, and their applications. The lectures will only provide introductions and pointers, while most of technical work will be done by students, under counselors' guidance, when solving the daily sets of problems. Group meetings, guided by counselors and junior counselors will be held in each student group during the day and in the evening. Guest lectures by the TAMU faculty might be given on some afternoons. These lectures will be of expository nature and will address a variety of topics from mathematics and its applications.


Fees There are no fees. The camp will offer free room, board, instructions, and supplies to accepted participants. Travel expenses are not covered. Students should bring some money for private expenses, laundry, etc.


Students from underrepresented groups are highly encouraged to apply.
