Why is the Pre-College Program Important?
Pre-College outreach programs and schools share the same missions of preparing students for success. The result is typically the success of a limited number of students, while others in need are left to fend for themselves.
Rigorous Academic preparation, long-term relationships, supportive peer groups, financial assistance, cultural sensitivity-- these are some of the factors that characterize the most successful pre-college outreach programs, programs that are substantially increasing the college-going rates of students under-represented in higher education.
Our Pre-College Advisor serves as liaison to first-generation college students and others, assisting them in bridging the gap between achievement in high school to students successful performance at the college level at the University of Wisconsin-Sheboygan. They also serve as a resource for high school and middle school personnel in matters related to students’ preparation.
