Parent Testimonial about the Summer Residential Program at Yale                      

 My son N participated in this year’s Yale Bridgeport GEAR UP Program. I just wanted to tell you that he truly had a wonderful experience. The facilities, teachers, students and extra-curricular activities were great. He really enjoyed all of it. He came home with a new attitude towards school. Something he really needed. N had never been away from home before so that alone was a new experience for him. I really think it helped him mature in those three weeks. I also think it gave him a better sense of what it would be like to go to college. He made some great friends too. I just wanted to thank you for accepting N in to the program and hope he can participate again next year. Thank you. ~ Curt R.
