GOAT Math Summer Camp
Four Days Of Math Inquiry & Discovery
We invite all 6th, 7th and 8th grade students to attend our 4-day math camp to pick up (and expand upon) where their class left off.
During each session, students will cover the core math concepts taught in middle school and prepare for what lies ahead.
The goal of the GOAT Math Camp is to ensure students feel prepared and excited for next school year.
GOAT Math Camp is led by an experienced teacher, and all content is aligned to the Texas mandated curriculum and the methodologies taught in the HISD vanguard/IB programs.

Would it be beneficial for my student to attend more than one session?
This depends upon the needs and goals of your student. During each session, instruction will be provided for a total of 8 units -- one unit in the morning and one unit in the afternoon each day. Depending on the grade level, there are 10 to 12 units in a full school year math curriculum. For those units not covered during instruction, students will be provided notes and practice materials only.
Can my student receive targeted instruction and practice to address specific content areas?
After a student completes a session, an adjusted instructional plan to target specific needs may be made for subsequent sessions. So, whether your student wants more time with the entire curriculum, or they want help with a specific unit, they are welcome to attend multiple sessions for targeted instruction. Modified instruction will be within the camp setting and is not meant as private tutoring.
Will my student be able to master all presented content and concepts by the end of the camp?
This depends on your student; however, keep in mind, your student will cover nearly a school year of content within four days. The intent of the camp is to bolster your student's confidence and familiarity with math, so they can master and excel when it counts.
Can my student cover the curriculum of multiple grade levels in one session?
Students will be provided the notes and practice materials for one grade level each session. If your student would like to review their previous year curriculum and prepare for the curriculum in the year ahead, they will need to attend two sessions.
What does my student need to bring to camp?
Students will need to bring a spiral notebook and two mechanical pencils. Interactive notes and practice problems will be provided. Students may want to bring a folder to organize provided materials.
What should my student expect from camp?
Your student should be prepared for an intensive and intentional academic camp. A lot of content will be covered, so your student can expect to be challenged and taken out of their comfort zone.
What do the camp leaders expect from students?
While camp is a more relaxed environment than school without the high-stakes grades and tests, students are expected to be at camp for the right reason -- to learn. As such, students are expected to remain respectful and on task. Any student who is disruptive to the learning environment will be asked to leave camp. No refunds will be given for students who are asked to leave camp.
Is an early drop-off (or late pick-up) time available?
Given our camp is not located at school, we must adhere to the posted start and end times. In the morning, you should not drop off your student any earlier than 15 minutes before the start of camp. In the afternoon, students will not be released until the end of camp, and all students should be picked-up within 15 minutes of the end of camp. Student supervision is not guaranteed outside of camp hours.
