where high school students experience what college is really like!
Fast Track through College: A College Simulation is a fast-paced, interactive workshop that introduces high school students to the social, financial, and academic realities of college. Choosing classes, managing financial aid, living with roommates, getting a job, and finding needed resources are just a few of the challenges students experience during the 1/2-day Simulation.
Students who have realistic expectations of college life are more likely to graduate than students who are uninformed.
