NASHVILLE (AP) — Nashville Mayor Karl Dean says enrollment is now open for the 2015 Mayor's Summer Scholars Academy.

The academy is a free, four-week intensive program that seeks to help Metro school students be successful and achieve their college aspirations. Students currently in the seventh, eighth, ninth or 10th grades are encouraged to apply.

The program will take place from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. June 8 to July 3 at Cane Ridge, Hunters Lane, McGavock and Whites Creek high schools.

It includes transportation, meals, enrichment activities and weekly field trips.

Organizers say students will have the opportunity to learn in small groups with positive leaders and improve their academic skills with engaging, hands-on projects.

The Academy began as a pilot program in the summer of 2012 for rising ninth-graders.
