College Camps

We believe that expanding college awareness in high school is essential.

High school counseling teams are stretched.  According to the US Department of Education, each public school counselor is responsible for 476 students, on average.

Our School-to-College camps are designed to help teenagers (7th - 11th graders) learn everything about getting into US colleges  - in a fun way through games, activities, mini-projects and quizzes centered on the college theme.   Camp is a perfect place to learn "Do-It-Yourself" skills about one of the most important decisions a teenager makes.  See below for a typical 5-day camp schedule.
