A College Prep Program
Step Ahead Scholars' College Bridge Academy provides individualized college coaching for high school juniors and seniors. We help students set goals that align with their interests and abilities and then coach them through each step of the college admissions process. Students have access to a range of resources and participate in both group and individual mentoring sessions. Our program covers topics including: "Best Fit" Colleges, SAT/ACT Prep, Pre-College Summer Programs, College Applications, Scholarships, Financial Aid and FAFSA, and Evaluating Offers.
Transition and College Support
Getting into college is an important step, but we want students to succeed in college as well. We provide support to students as they transition into college including reviewing financial aid offers, arranging campus visits, and making sure they have the supplies they need. We also connect them with campus support resources, so they know where to find help on campus. College coaches send important reminders and follow up with students periodically to ensure all of their questions are answered and encourage them to advocate for themselves when necessary.
College Access Outreach
At Step Ahead Scholars, we believe in leveling the playing field for college bound students. In addition to our student services, our college access specialists raise awareness about college opportunities and the admissions process through presentations, trainings, and school/community events. Content area experts present on a wide range of topics to educate students and their families on how to find, apply, get accepted to, and afford their best fit colleges.
