On the evening of Monday September 21, 2015 starting at 6:30pm sharp, the College Access Center will once again host an Open House for local high school students and parents interested in preparing for college.
The Center provides a large number of FREE College Preparatory and academic support services to high school students including a weekly SAT/ACT Class conducted by Kaplan-Trained Facilitators, 1-on-1 Counseling, Homework Help, and Tutoring, along with monthly workshops on admissions, financial aid, and scholarships.
Parents looking for early and intensive pre-college development services for younger high school students can also sign up for the Center’s signature outreach initiative called the Road Map to College Program.
This special program is aimed at 9-12th graders and meets twice per week throughout the year teaching younger students how properly prepare and successfully “navigate” their way to college. Participants also hear about careers from invited guests lecturers, take trips to colleges, and are provided regular mentorship from current college students.
The Center will also continue its very successful Male Achievers Program, a unique initiative designed to assist and encourage young men of color, ages 12-17 who have a serious interest in STEM careers and becoming overall scholars. Participants meet once per month for interesting group excursions, academic skill development, athletic and science competition, in addition to receiving mentoring by successful adult professionals about career success.
One of the rewards for enrollment and active participation by students is the automatic eligibility to compete for several exclusive college scholarships including the Dorothy James Scholarship and special supplemental awards offered by the sororities of Alpha Kappa Alpha, Inc. and Delta Sigma Theta, Inc. (Chester Alumnae Chapter).
To be eligible for these exclusive scholarships, students must be currently enrolled in at least one CACDC program during in their senior year of high school, produce a full high school transcript, standardized test scores, have a legal address within Delaware County, and be listed as an active participant in majority of the program classes/activities.
