ABC SUMMER PROGRAM, 1967.
KERR, FRANCES M.; RUSSELL, VALERIE E.
THE THIRD SUMMER (1967) OF THE MT. HOLYOKE COLLEGE RESIDENTIAL SUMMER PROGRAM FOR ABLE, DISADVANTAGED HIGH SCHOOL GIRLS IS DESCRIBED. BECAUSE OF A DRASTIC CUT IN SCHOLARSHIP FUNDS, THE PROGRAM WAS FORCED TO CHANGE FROM ITS ORIGINAL PLAN TO PREPARE THESE GIRLS FOR ADMISSION TO PRIVATE SCHOOLS. INSTEAD, THE PROGRAM OFFERED COLLEGE PREPARATION AND COUNSELING AND A VARIETY OF RECREATIONAL, CULTURAL, AND CREATIVE ACTIVITIES TO GIRLS WHO WOULD RETURN TO THEIR OWN HIGH SCHOOLS. DISCUSSED ARE THE SELECTION OF STUDENTS, FACULTY, AND RESIDENT TUTORS, AND VARIOUS PROGRAM CURRICULUMS. MEDICAL AND FINANCIAL REPORTS ARE PRESENTED, AND A SUMMARY OF RESEARCH ON THE SUMMER PROGRAM COMPARES SOME DATA ON THE 1965, 1966, AND 1967 GROUPS OF GIRLS PARTICIPATING IN THIS PROGRAM. PRE- AND POST-1967 SESSION QUESTIONNAIRES INDICATED A POSITIVE ATTITUDE TOWARD THE PROGRAM, ALTHOUGH AT THE END OF THE SUMMER THE NUMBER OF AFFIRMATIVE RESPONSES HAD DROPPED SOMEWHAT. APPENDIXES INCLUDE A SAMPLE DAILY SCHEDULE, INFORMATION ON THE GEOGRAPHIC DISTRIBUTION OF THE STUDENTS, AND A FAMILY AND STUDENT ACADEMIC PROFILE. (NH)
