SATURDAY ACADEMY PARENT INFORMATION FORM
The UMKC School of Medicine hosts Saturday Academy, a free program for students in 9th through 12th grade. The goal of the program is to provide enrichment in math and science, and further develop test-taking strategies and study skills. This preparation is especially important for students interested in entering a career in healthcare or another science intensive area of study. These skills are also necessary for students wanting to prepare for college.
Saturday Academy takes place on most Saturdays from October through March. Saturday Academy will begin on October 21, 2023 with an orientation at 9:00 am. Sessions will be conducted primarily in-person but may also have a virtual component as needed. Details for all sessions will be clearly communicated to students and parents in advance. All in-person sessions will run from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.
Students interested in Saturday Academy must meet the following requirements:
