Pathway to College

Year One provides students the opportunity to prepare for college by attending Pathway to College. This 1-week summer course is designed to assist recent high school graduates as they make a successful transition into college life. Year One students receive information and engage in exercises that will make academic requirements more clear and remove common obstacles that can delay students' progress. Topics include: knowledge of resources, study techniques, writing skills, critical thinking skills, motivation and self-efficacy. This class has a strong emphasis on group work and peer learning.
