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.

Ideally, students are supported from high school through to the end of college. The program uses a three-pronged approach to support college access and success: Academics, Entrepreneurship and Career Exploration.

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-Friday from 4 pm to 6 pm. Student attendance depends upon their roster schedules.

On average, most students attend programming at least twice a week but all participants are welcome to attend up to five days a week. All students are required to attend weekly academic seminars. Snacks are provided between 3 pm to 4 pm. The official start of programming is 4 pm.

 

All Teen participants are required to attend academic seminars in an effort to build academic success. 

College trips occur throughout the spring. The College Access Program will guide students and families through the college access process and support college retention and success.
