CAMBridge Program

CAMBridge Program graphicThe 8th Grade → Algebra CAMBridge Program (Comprehensive Algebra Modules) is a self-paced program for all 8th grade students with the opportunity to demonstrate, deepen, and strengthen their mathematical understanding of Algebra 1 standards.

Under the guidance of Upper School and High School educators, you will:

  • Work through mathematics modules independently at your own pace to build confidence, skills, and understanding.
  • Attend and engage in guided mandatory synchronous check-ins to meet fellow 9th graders and check-in with your facilitators.
  • Strengthen and deepen your understanding of mathematics to prepare for your 9th grade mathematics experience at CRLS.

Algebra 1 – July 10th, 2023 - August 18th, 2023
In the Summer, this program will focus on providing a space for rising 9th graders to engage in Algebra 1 content (Summer 2023).

If you are interested in having your student participate in this program this Summer, please fill out this Registration form. If your scholar is coming from a Non-CPS Upper School, please use this form, so that we can send you a valid Student ID # for registration purposes.

  • Once you fill out an application, we will confirm enrollment with a registration link, prior to the program’s start.


  •  At CRLS you will be required to take a math course every year. Algebra 1 is the foundation of all our high school math classes, hence it is important that you find success and build confidence so you can excel in your 9th grade math class!
  • The program is 100% designed and developed to meet your needs, and you will get the opportunity to preview OR master Algebra 1 content.
  • You get to work at your own pace, engage as you feel comfortable, and work 1-on-1 with a facilitator.
  • At CRLS taking control of your math pathway can lead to taking electives and other courses earlier on in your high school career!

The following recorded presentation will help clarify the goals and objectives of the program and answer some questions.
