TRIO - Summer Institute

TRIO SSS Summer Institute is a 2 week program designed to prepare students for college.  A faculty member will work with students to build upon reading or math skills that are fundamental to college success. Each session is facilitated by college staff and includes academic and enrichment activities. Other college staff will help students understand how to navigate the college campus, apply for financial aid, develop college goals, and excel in the classroom.  At the end of the program, participants retake the ACCUPLACER exam with hopes of improving their reading or math score.
