Also during the month the students will be participating in scholarship, college entrance test prep, school skills and other important workshops and presentations.  They will also be able to go on field trips to heighten interest in math and science careers. 


The Academy is free to all participants with room and meal plan included.  UBMS also provides a laptop and school supplies to the students. They will room with other students from other high schools in Northern Arizona and have the chance to make life long friendships.


The rising senior class will also be eligible to go on a College Tour after the academy is complete to visit schools that have excellent backgrounds in both Science and Math.
