College Access Academy at Drexel

Admitted Students Days

Applying to colleges is both an exciting and overwhelming time for high school students and their families — this is especially true for minority and first-generation college students. To aid you in the process, Drexel presents the College Access Academy. This one-week, residential program is designed to assist rising high school juniors and seniors within these populations through the college selection and admissions processes. Interactive workshops will be offered on topics including selecting a right-fit college, choosing a major, SAT Preparation, essay writing, interviewing skills, financing a college education, and more. Underrepresented and underserved high school students of color from Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware, Washington, D.C., and Maryland will be invited to participate in the Academy. The capstone of the week is for students to leave with a list of right-fit schools to visit and apply to in their senior year.
