The purpose of this study was to examine the effect of a Freshman Bridge Program on student attitude, student achievement in Algebra I, and overall student academic achievement beginning in the spring of the eighth grade year through the first semester of the ninth grade year. The Freshman Bridge Program began with a three-week summer program in July focused on hands-on math activities, career counseling, and study skills. Throughout the first semester of their ninth grade year, participants were a part of a continuum of interventions that included bi-quarterly case management meetings with the researcher and school counselor, data monitoring, and peer tutoring as needed. The research questions focused on student attitude, student achievement in Algebra I, and overall student achievement.
