Students accepted into the College Mindset Academy
Program are enrolled and are required to attend monthly Saturday Sessions. These sessions focus on student leadership through the use of networking techniques that scaffold the development and mastery of fundamental soft skills. Skills that will prepare them for our Ivy League Summer College Tour.
Our Ivy League Summer College Tour affords students the opportunity to explore various East Coast universities first hand and network with faculty and current students. Students will spend a week the East Coast visiting universities such as: Georgetown, George Washington University, American University, Swarthmore, University of Pennsylvania, Princeton, Columbia, Yale, Brown, MIT, Harvard, Boston University and Boston College. As well as taking in the sights and having fun!
Students are also guided through the College Readiness Process. We assist students in developing their personal statement, submitting scholarship applications, completing financial aid documents, and registering their Apply Texas and their Common App student accounts. Along with this, students receive tips on the college interview and first hand presentations from Ivy League graduates!
