About 100 incoming seniors participated in the five-day GEAR UP University Ready Summer Residential Camp at the University of Texas at San Antonio on June 18-22. The students stayed in dorms, experienced campus life and attended sessions taught by UTSA professors. The students had the opportunity to work on their college essays so they will be ready to submit with their college applications in the fall. Twenty parents also spent a night in the dorms and participated in college sessions designed specifically for them.
What an opportunity for SAISD and other local students: Edison HS is host to the Chamber Orchestra of San Antonio Music Institute, where students are receiving intensive training and private instruction from an internationally recognized panel of senior artists and collaborators. The two-week institute culminates July 2 in a closing concert by the young artists at the Tobin Center for the Performing Arts.
