Summer College Readiness Program

PURPOSE:  

About 40 percent of traditional college students take at least one remedial course to prepare for college-level coursework. According to scholars and policymakers, one cause of this problem is the misalignment of high school graduation standards and college academic expectations. Our College readiness program is designed in an attempt to address several problems by facilitating students’ transition to college. This program is focused on college knowledge and the enrollment process. This programs intent is to provide a base that would enhance high school students with the ability to make sound decisions about which college and potential programs to fit their need.
