Benefits of In-Person Programs

One of the key benefits of in-person programs is the chance to explore different college campuses, and way(s) of life. Choosing a college can be challenging, but these programs provide workshops, seminars, and hands-on activities to not only help you choose your future college, but help you discover your passion. Interactive sessions with industry professionals and real-world simulations offer a comprehensive career exploration experience, guiding you towards making informed decisions about your future. Also, during a program like this, experienced instructors and mentors are there, dedicated to supporting your growth.

Universities Offering In-Person Programs

Many universities offer in-person college prep programs on campus, in which you go stay at the dorm and take courses – just like a regular college student. These opportunities are typically held during summer, winter, or spring break, and can last anywhere from one week to several weeks, depending on the chosen program and college.
