Program Feature

 

Several studies have shown that completing rigorous academic curricula in high school and providing students with opportunities to learn about colleges, financial aid, and campus life helps students overcome socioeconomic disadvantages. Preparing more completely for college in high school tends to result in increased college completion rates. Bridge Builders to the New Generation college readiness provides fundamental support to participants in their preparation for college entrance. The program provides opportunities for participants to succeed in their pre-college performance and ultimately in their higher education pursuits. The goal of this program is to increase the rate at which participants complete secondary education and enroll in and graduate from institutions of post-secondary education. Choosing a college, applying, securing financial aid, and then adjusting to college life require a tremendous amount of specialized knowledge. This knowledge includes matching personal interests with college majors and programs; understanding federal and individual college financial aid programs and how and when to complete appropriate forms; registering for, preparing for, and taking required admissions exams; applying to college on time and submitting all necessary information; and, perhaps most important, understanding how the culture of college is different from that of high school.
