Congratulations on your promotion to high school!

The Algebra Academy is a FREE 120-hour summer program for incoming high school students (most recently serving Sunnyside and Tucson Unified School Districts) that allows participants to be active as they learn about algebraic concepts through fun, project-based activities. 

In addition to the math preparation, students focus on their futures as they gain skills in how to manage the transition into high school, learn about college preparation, and explore career opportunities that match their interests.  The purpose of the Algebra Academy is to provide students with a foundation and understanding of algebra they can build upon to achieve success in their future mathematics courses and on their path to a university education.  

The Algebra Academy is not a substitute for Algebra I.  Instead, participants will earn 1.0 unit of elective high school credit. 

The Algebra Academy will serve 25-30 student participants on a first-come, first-served basis at designated high schools.  Program serves students entering 9th grade in high school during the 2024-2025 academic year.  


  • Challenge yourself to learn algebra while gaining 1.0 elective credit for high school.
  • Gain an understanding of algebraic concepts through hands-on, engaging activities.
  • Prepare yourself for a successful transition to your next level of education by learning more about your high school’s campus, staff, and resources.
  • Plan for college and explore future career opportunities to understand the importance of mathematics and academic achievement.
  • Space is limited to 25-30 students per high school.

On behalf of the school districts and The University of Arizona, we urge you to take advantage of this unique opportunity to prepare yourself for mathematics, high school and a college education. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact UA Early Academic Outreach at 520-626-2300.
