Dear Friends,

At the end of May, we celebrated a milestone graduation: our 25th. Now, our newest alumni are on the cusp of becoming first-generation college students, and like the 24 classes that came before them, we know they will continue to excel in college and in their careers.

Meanwhile, our current students are working hard to follow in their footsteps. Rising seniors started to think more seriously about their own next steps in our college application “boot camp,” while incoming freshmen are kicking off their Eastside experience in our Summer Bridge Program. Students are also taking a variety of Eastside electives and Foothill College classes on our campus and pursuing a variety of exciting off-campus opportunities. These include:

    ● Academic programs such as the Meta Summer Academy and Girls Who Code
    ● Internships with companies like Advent International, Skydio, and Stanford Health Care
    ● Outdoor adventures in Alaska and Wyoming
    ● Volunteer roles with local nonprofits including the Boys and Girls Club, Cooline Kids, and Canopy
    ● And even international trips to Japan, Italy, and Spain

Our Summer Session is such an important time for learning and growth, as students take on new challenges and embrace the unfamiliar. We can’t wait to hear more about their adventures in the fall when our whole school community will be reunited. In the meantime, we’re very grateful to everyone who is helping to make these exciting opportunities possible.
