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.
Students who struggle with social anxiety and have difficulty making friends have the option of participating in social support activities, including social pragmatic workshops and student affairs events. Resident assistants are available as peer mentors to provide information about activities and to help students feel connected to the Landmark community.
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.
