UW-Sheboygan offers Pre-College Program for area high school students
Area under-represented high school students preparing for college are encouraged to attending the University of Wisconsin-Sheboygan’s 2010-11 Pre-College Program this school year. A special Kick-Off and Orientation session will be held Tuesday, October 19 from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. in Room 1202 on the UW-Sheboygan campus. All interested students and their family members are welcome.
The UW-Sheboygan Pre-College program is designed for under-represented youth in grades 9-12. This free program, which is open to any student interested in learning more about college and how to get there, focuses on college preparation, and students work closely with UW-Sheboygan student mentors throughout the duration of the program. Students participating in the program also have the opportunity to visit a University of Wisconsin college campus in May.
Students participating in the UW-Sheboygan Pre-College Program will:
• Focus on personal and school needs;
• Receive financial aid information;
• Explore college/university options and careers;
• Experience personal development through monthly workshops.
Specifically, students will work to increase their self-confidence, learn how to handle new challenges, build study skills and discover how education fits into their future.
Activities run throughout the academic school year from October 2010 to May 2011 and will include weekday workshops. These workshops will be held one weekday a month on the UW-Sheboygan campus from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. All workshops are held in Room 1202, located in the UW-Sheboygan Main Building.
Each workshop will focus on different skills and experiences necessary in college preparation. A light dinner/snack will be provided at each session. A year-end field trip to a selected college or university will be decided by the group.
