Core Services Summerbridge provides comprehensive year-round programs to develop Form 2 and Form 3 students’ English communication through an intensive English Language Development curriculum, small class size, individual mentoring, and hands-on learning strategies. In addition to English language development, Summerbridge programs develop students’ self-confidence and their interest in the learning process.
Achievements / Pioneer Projects Achievements:

As proof of the organization’s effectiveness, students who have participated in Summerbridge have consistently scored significantly higher on their HKCEE English results than the Hong Kong average. In 2010, 90% of Summerbridge graduates attained level 2 or above on the subject of English Language of the Hong Kong Certificate of Education Examination (HKCEE) compared to the Hong Kong average of 65%.

Principals, teachers, community leaders, parents and students, recognize that Summerbridge Hong Kong is positively making a significant difference in the lives of Hong Kong’s youth. Principals of participating schools stated that Summerbridge provided “tremendous” benefits to their students in English, self -confidence and leadership.


Pioneer projects:

Summerbridge was established in Hong Kong in 1992 and is based on an American model that was founded in 1978 at the San Francisco Day High School. Summerbridge is the only registered charity in Hong Kong providing long-term, tuition-free, year-round intensive English education to financially disadvantaged students. It provides comprehensive year-round programs to develop students’ English communication through an intensive English Language Development curriculum, small class size, individual mentoring, and hands-on learning strategies. In addition to English language development, Summerbridge programs develop students’ self-confidence and their interest in the learning process. Unique to this project and key to its success is the ‘students-teaching-students’ model, offering older Native English speaking students and local students with high-level English communication abilities the opportunity to teach and administer programs to younger students. This model creates a dynamic learning environment in which young people are both the initiators and beneficiaries of the educational process.
