The CASA Academy Summer Bridge Program is an alternative admissions program presented by the Center for Academic Success and Achievement at Morgan State University. Transitioning high school students are referred to the CASA Academy Summer Bridge Program after applying first to Morgan State University. Students can only apply after being referred by the Office of Undergraduate Admissions. We accept a maximum of 300 applicants for each summer cohort, based on selective application process. All participants who successfully complete the program are guaranteed admission to the University for the subsequent fall semester.

The CASA Academy Summer Bridge Program is designed to ease the transition from high school to college for students whose academic profile and performance suggest the need for early intervention to improve their potential for success in college. Upon acceptance to the Academy, participants must enroll and successfully complete (earn a grade of C or better) a sequence of three non-credit courses designed to strengthen the student's background in English, mathematics, and reading comprehension and vocabulary development.  Students will also be introduced to a strengths-based orientation seminar designed to help build students' awareness of their natural talents.

The CASA Academy Summer Bridge Program is an academically intense and rigorous program. It is offered for a six-week period during the summer. Courses are held Monday through Friday between 9:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. Additional supplemental instruction, as well as academic, personal, and leadership development seminars are held in the evenings between 6:30 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. Participants' primary purpose and goal of participating in the CASA Academy is to improve their skill development in the identified core areas in order to gain admission to the University.

Students in the CASA Academy must agree to meet the following standards:

  • Successfully complete all CASA Academy courses with a grade of C or better
  • Attend all scheduled CASA Academic classes and sponsored activities
  • Participate in all mandatory seminars, workshops, activities, etc.

ALL participants are required to pay $625 for meals (19 meals per week).
