What is College Prep?

College Prep is an academic success program designed to inspire the dream of a college education and help youth link future aspirations with academic goals.

-Middle and high school youth are exposed to college visitations, a college resource center within the Club, guest speakers, SAT/ACT preparation, and parent information meetings for financial aid, loans, and scholarships.

-Through the Clark College Penguin Promise Program, up to 25 youth can receive a full or prorated scholarship to the college based on when they enter the program.
