Approximately 20 multilingual Anchorage School District students, grades 7 through 12, will read original poetry and prose they have written during this year's ASD/UAA Summer Academy.

The Summer Academy is a partnership between ASD's English Language Learner Program and UAA's College Preparatory and Developmental Studies Department. Through this exciting collaboration, more than 200 students have spent three and a half weeks on campus. They are earning high school math and English credit from courses team-taught by ASD teachers and UAA faculty. Students are also earning UAA credit for a University Studies course.

All UAA Campus Bookstore events are free and open to the public. Parking at UAA is free on Fridays.
