Liberty Partnership Program

Senior Year Programming

In addition to participating in Saturday Scholar Academy programming, senior program participants can also enroll in the transition to college seminar and/or apply for a teacher assistant internship. Both opportunities provide further experience in preparation for college.

Transition to College Senior Seminar

The Transition to College Senior Seminar starts with a College Admissions Bootcamp the first full week of August. A series of daily workshops are designed to help students and their families navigate the college application and financial aid process. In addition to workshops, daily independent work sessions provide time for seniors to obtain assistance with individual application tasks.

During the school year workshops are scheduled to prepare students for a successful first year of college. Workshops are presented by Hofstra University personnel, community organizations, college students and CEAS staff. Sample topics include: time management, study strategies for college, fiscal awareness and self-care.

Students are welcome to attend all or a selection of workshops, depending on need. Registration for the College Admissions Bootcamp is held in April, while registration for Transition to College is held in September.

Teacher Assistant Internship

Students who have enrolled and participated in Saturday Scholars Academy prior to grade 12 are invited to apply for a Teacher Assistant (TA) Internship. Teacher Assistants are assigned to specific Saturday Scholar Academy classes. Responsibilities include assisting teachers with lesson planning, implementation, attendance and student support. Training focused on soft skills, such as, communication, teamwork and networking are required for all Teacher Assistants, and hosted by CEAS staff.

Applications are available in August and are due before the end of September. All applicants are required to interview. Seniors selected to be TA’s will be contacted before the Saturday Scholars Academy classes start.
