Our Summer College Readiness Program, for college-bound high school graduates, is all about preparation—through practice and exposure—for that crucial first semester of college.
Even the most high-achieving students often face unanticipated difficulties in their first semester of college possibly putting them at risk for failure or struggle. Problems often arise not from a lack of academic abilities, but from the enormous jump in independence required in a college environment.
This program is designed to help students:
- Learn to articulate individual learning issues that need attention
- Identify the specific supports and accommodations they’ll need in college—and how to access them
- Experience a typical introductory college-level lecture class
- Learn and practice self-advocacy skills they’ll need to navigate through their freshman year
- Apply organizational skills, helpful habits, and useful behaviors needed to succeed at college—and identify problem habits and behaviors that might surface during their first year
Students are immersed in a living/learning experience that offers a real “taste” of college life and the college-level work they will encounter in the fall. They develop a clear understanding of their personal learning strengths and needs, and discover how resources and self-advocacy can support their success in college.
Note: For admission to this program, students must provide a letter of admission to a four-year college or university. A diagnosed learning disability is not required to enroll in this program.
