Beyond the Classroom
Throughout their daily activities, students in our programs are developing the skills to be successful in college. And while academic readiness is key, we also believe that social and emotional preparedness is just as important. Students in our programs report significant growth in the following areas: critical thinking, self-advocacy, networking, independent living, time management, self-reflection, decision-making, group collaboration, communication, and cultural understanding.
We create an environment that encourages exploration and self-reflection. This includes our support of students with the college search and application process. We understand that navigating this process can feel stressful, confusing, and sometimes overwhelming. Our team is committed to meeting students where they are in the process; whether that's helping research colleges, reading over personal essays, or connecting them to valuable on-campus resources.
Through participation in our programs, students can expect to:
- Experience growth in key college readiness skills.
- Gain confidence in the college application and financial aid process.
- Discover opportunities for educational and personal engagement outside of the classroom.
