College Access Program


COVID-19 Update: We are currently operating remotely until the Honickman Learning Center Comcast Technology Labs reopens.  


The College Access Program is a college preparatory program that seeks to efficiently prepare teens and families in previously underserved areas to achieve college success through the mediums of career and college readiness, college access, and successful college retention with the goal to prepare students for, and ensure they succeed in, post-secondary education and employment.

Students participate in academic support courses and specialty programs. These provide an out-of-school creative outlet while simultaneously develop technology and academic skills. Students choose from a variety of offerings, all of which utilize Project Based Learning, which strengthen academic skills through the integration of core standards which indicate if a student is “college ready”.

In addition to academic support, enrichment, SAT prep and college access guidance, the program offers electives in the areas of:

  • Culinary Arts
  • Film
  • Photography
  • Digital Music
  • Digital Media
  • Computer Technology
  • Robotics

The College Access Program schedule is Monday through Friday from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m.
