College Access Academy

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 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. Each student will be paired with a College Access Academy faculty member who will guide them throughout the week and provide individualized counseling. 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.

Format In-person, residential
Cost Free
