Summer Bridge Information

Welcome to the Ánimo Venice Family! We are looking forward to the next four years of preparing your son/daughter for college,
leadership, and life. This confirmation letter contains very important information regarding Summer Bridge 2019, a mandatory 2-
week orientation program designed to acclimate your son/daughter to Animo Venice Charter High School (AVCHS) from June 17-

Summer Bridge is an orientation program that sets students up for success. During this time, students will take classes in College
Readiness, Mathematics, and English. They will also participate in a local college trip and a community service trip. They will also
take placement tests in English, Mathematics, and Spanish to determine fall class placement. Please see below for your Summer
