Adelphi virtually hosts two college-readiness programs for high school students: the Hispanic Community Partnership Program and Pre-College Certificate Program.
This week, Adelphi is putting out the virtual welcome mat for high school students attending two college-readiness programs: the Hispanic Community Partnership Program and Pre-College Certificate Program. Both programs aim to provide students with the knowledge and skills to prepare for and succeed in a college setting.
Hispanic Community Partnership Program
The Hispanic Community Partnership Program runs from July 20–24. Introduced last year, this free college-readiness program is designed to expose Hispanic high school students to college life while they gain the skills, resources and confidence to pursue a college degree.
To participate in the Hispanic Community Partnership Program, a student must be of Hispanic background, a rising junior or senior in good academic standing, and demonstrate qualities of potential and promise.
Program workshops will include college essay writing, navigating the college application process, résumé building, financial literacy and more.
Students who participate in the program who wish to apply to Adelphi will have their application fee waived, and will be eligible for a $1,000 per year award (Adelphi Advantage Award).
Pre-College Certificate Program
From July 20–22, rising high school sophomores, juniors and seniors will attend the virtual three-day, noncredit Pre-College Certificate Program. The students will explore one of 14 different academic subjects—including health sciences, the arts, technology and business—within a challenging and supportive University-based, remote learning community. The program costs $50.
Pre-College students will also attend two college-readiness workshops and learn tips and tricks to get ahead on their college search and application process. The workshops will be led by Adelphi professors and experts from the Office of University Admissions and will include current Adelphi students.
At the conclusion of the program, students will earn a certificate in the subject area they choose.
