Jump Start is a summer program of fun and educational courses designed to support and ease the transition to middle school for rising 6th grade students attending Sacred Heart Schools, Atherton. The program focuses on academic domains critical to middle school success and affords students an opportunity to work with Sacred Heart faculty, get comfortable on campus and come to know a small group of their classmates prior to the start of school. Additionally, participants will receive their SHS tech device so they can begin to work with applications and programs used regularly in 6th grade.
