Pre-college Program Accepting Applications From Area Eighth Grade Students

The University of Scranton’s University of Success is currently accepting applications from eighth grade students to enter the multi-year, pre-college program in the summer of 2013.

Applicants must currently be enrolled in the eighth grade, possess a strong desire to attend college in the future and meet other program requirements.

The University of Success is designed for high school students to develop the skills needed to successfully gain entrance to college and includes enrichment courses for students in study skills, SAT preparation, public speaking, math, science, art and cultural activities, as well as financial aid and wellness seminars. The program provides hands-on learning experiences and field trips designed to engage the students in creative thinking and abstract problem solving.

Students then continue to participate in the program through their four years of high school with the ultimate goal of gaining acceptance into a four-year college or university.
