The Summer Bridge workbook can be purchased from Carson Dellosa for the grade that the student will be entering next year. 
The middle school math program consists of short video lessons reviewing pre-algebra and algebra concepts with accompanying practice worksheets. No curriculum is needed for the middle school program.
