Extended Learning Opportunities

 College Access Centers - Chester Upland has doubled its college access opportunities for all high school students.  To assist with college readiness, the district will offer additional support in the instructional programs. Literacy will be taught by a college professor, Academic Seminar and Power Mathematics 2 classes will be taught by high school instructors.  The objective of the College Access centers is to promote a culture among our students and their families that stresses the importance of going to college. We also promote postsecondary support through career and workforce development opportunities.  Students will experience PSAT and SAT preparation, FAFSA assistance, college tours and fairs and career readiness skills. 
Junior Senior Challenge Program is a precollege experience for our rising 11th and 12th grade students.  These students participate in a 3 week learning experience on the Widener University campus.  The experience includes literacy and mathematics, time management, study skills and college tours.  In addition, the students take a week-long Dale Carnegie course to develop their leadership skills.

Project Forward Leap is a college experience for students in elementary school, grade 5.  Selected students spend 5 weeks away from home at a different college each summer until their 8th grade year. The program provides academic, social and cultural development for the students in Chester Upland.

Summer Programs The purpose of summer school is to provide meaningful engagement time and extended learning opportunity for all students who attend Chester Upland schools.  First time kindergarten students, special needs ESY students, regular education enrichment students and high school students with failing grades all benefit from the district’s summer school programs.

Tutoring Support Chester Upland provides tutoring support to students in elementary, middle and high school 9th graders during the school day.  Students receive reading and mathematics support to improve their academic achievement levels.  

Our Libraries This fall the Chester Upland School district will feature a web-based student friendly library system called Destiny.  The Destiny System is designed to strengthen the library/classroom connection: match titles to students’ reading levels, align collection materials to standards, provide safe web searching, and streamline cataloging of non-print materials.  The Destiny Library System will be featured in all district schools this fall.
