Summer Programs

Bridge 2 CBA Brothers

Bridge 2 CBA Brothers is a summer program for rising 5th & 6th grade students in the Syracuse City School District. Entering its third year in the Summer of 2023, the program offers a holistic and experiential approach to learning. 

Bridge 2 CBA Brothers provides an educational experience that will reduce barriers to success; inspire academic curiosity through experiential learning; enrich academics and develop life skills.

The program is funded through the generosity of alumnus Dan Byrne ’70 and his wife, Cristine J. DeMaio. Byrne is an entrepreneur and philanthropist who believes in providing opportunities for economically challenged youth through hands on experience, recognizing the short- and long-term impact of participatory education. 

The four-week program takes place at the school’s Randall Road campus. The program includes themed weeks where the students can learn about coding/robotics; local geology and exploration; rocket building and launching. The students will also have an opportunity to visit local attractions and foster connections with community leaders.

Bridge 2 CBA Brothers is inclusive, providing morning transportation, meals, snacks, and materials; and will be staffed by incredibly devoted and highly skilled CBA faculty, along with student volunteers and program administrators. 

Syracuse City School District students currently in the 4thand 5th grades whose demonstrated family income is less than $60,000 and who have net assets less than $100,000 are eligible. 

This year's program will run July 10-Aug. 4.
