Next Steps Program
Next Steps is an experiential Minimester class designed specifically to help juniors prepare for the total college process. During this intensive two-week course, students spend time off-campus visiting a variety of college campuses: big/small, public/private, urban/rural, coed/all-women’s, research/liberal arts, highly selective and more welcoming. Each Next Stepper will also participate in several on-campus workshops: assessing college and career interests, debunking common college myths, creating an academic resume and sample college application, mastering the college essay, sharpening SAT test taking skills, and participating in mock admission interviews and committee review. Past students have said this class was life-changing in that it opened their eyes to college opportunities and alleviated stress in their senior year with the prior completion of major tasks.
