Excell Class Sessions

Excell Class Sessions

Class Sessions are held during Fall and Spring school terms. We offer classes for students enrolled in school from 2nd grade through 12th grade. Class size is generally held to approximately 15 students each. Most Saturdays, students will attend two, 1-1/2 hour classes, between 9a.m. and noon.

The course of study includes:

MATHEMATICS - The mathematics curriculum is designed to increase the number of under-represented students interested the field of mathematics. Students are introduced to scientific methods and other basic research techniques for problem solving. We feel it necessary to DRILL students in fundamentals, for this is the key to math excellence.

The integrated curriculum will teach the students to use effective oral and written techniques to demonstrate the depth of their newly acquired knowledge and to work cooperatively to solve problems. Students will be taught four essential problem-solving applications skills; formulating problems, analyzing problems, finding and interpreting the solution. Workbooks and Schaum’s type material will be provided to each student, especially in mathematics courses.

SCIENCE - The goal of the Science program is to develop a scientifically literate group of Black and other minority students. The program emphasizes hands on experiments as a way to develop scientific and conceptual problem-solving skills. Hopefully, this will make students less fearful of science, since repetition is important.

Elementary students are given exposure to biology, physics, chemistry, and environmental studies, also. They will also be exposed to non-traditional facets of science such as engineering science, and other exciting areas as volunteers become available. High school classes include biology, chemistry, pre-physics and physics.

COMPUTER SCIENCE - The computer training program is designed to enhance mathematics and science learning experiences. Professional computer scientists and engineers develop creative tools for use by students to increase computer literacy, programming skills and broaden knowledge of computer languages.

PSAT/SAT PREPARATION - This program is designed to teach the student how to take a test , as well as, what to expect from the test.

ENRICHMENT PROGRAM - Field trips will be scheduled, if possible. However, the main emphasis of this program is on learning.

Although the program is a non-profit venture, there is a nominal fee to cover expenses. Expenses include costs for workbooks, materials, online links, occasional awards, and the necessary online platform license(s).

Fees are $85 for the first student and $65 for each of his/her siblings.

Discounts may be arranged, as needed, for those with documented inabilities to handle the nominal fees.

Fees are payable on the students’ first day in the program session by credit card or by check.

Checks shall be payable to “LACBPE”.
