Riverdale News & Stories
Now in its third summer, Bronx Connections is a Riverdale-led enrichment program and partnership with Bronx middle school students that offers inquiry-based academic enrichment, sports and fitness activities, and field trips to noteworthy New York City destinations.
The program is offered to rising seventh and eighth graders with the hope that the younger students will return for a second summer. Half of the 20 students taking part this year are in their second year.
The students come from five Bronx middle schools and are selected on the basis of recommendations from their schools and interviews. Riverdale faculty members from the humanities, STEM, arts, athletics, and Learning Research Team work with the students. Riverdale students and graduates serve as mentors.
