Saturday Academy at CSUN Enriches High School Students' Education

The Saturday School Enrichment Academy at Cal State Northridge helps African-American high school students score high on college placement exams while educating teenagers about African-American culture.

For the third consecutive year, the W.E.B. Dubois-Fannie Hamer Institute for African-American Academic Achievement, through the Pan-African Studies Department and Educational Opportunity Program at CSUN, is offering free semester-long academic enrichment classes every Saturday. Classes are from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. in Sierra Hall in the southwest part of campus, 18111 Nordhoff St. in Northridge, and at 3220 W. 85th St. in Inglewood. Approximately 20-25 students are accepted every fall and spring semester at each location.

The Saturday Academy reinforces math and English skills, and engages students in extensive cultural exploration. Students receive homework assistance and mentoring from CSUN Pan-African studies students.

"Parents thrive on the Afro-centric curriculum and the fact that their children get something more than just Monday-Friday education," said O.G. McClinton III, coordinator and instructor at the Inglewood site. McClinton is a graduating senior majoring in Pan-African Studies at CSUN.

Classes began October 14, with spaces still available at both locations. To enroll, call McClinton or T. Fox at (818) 677-3308.
