The program is designed for students who will be the first from their families to attend college or students who need extra support to continue their education. Students served by the program may not have the financial resources to attend college, may reside in single-parent households, be homeless, or be part of other underrepresented groups. Selection is also based on GPA, progress toward high school graduation, and test scores. This program differs from Dual Enrollment as students admitted to this program complete HS in 5 years, extending graduation by a year to fit in their college courses. Your counselor can answer any questions you may have about the advantages of applying to this program. Applications are for SOPHOMORES only and due the end of February annually.
