UW-S offers Pre-College Program for area high school students
Area high school students preparing for college are encouraged to attend the University of Wisconsin-Sheboygan’s 2011-12 Pre-College Program this school year.
The first program session will be held on September 29 from 4 to 6:30 p.m. in Room 2223 on the UW-Sheboygan campus. Refreshments will be provided. All interested students in grades 9-12 are welcome and encouraged to attend.
The UW-Sheboygan Pre-College program is designed for youth in grades 9-12. This free program focuses on college preparation, and students work closely with UW-Sheboygan student mentors throughout the duration of the program. Students participating in the program also have the opportunity to visit a University of Wisconsin college campus in May.
Students participating in the UW-Sheboygan Pre-College Program will:
• Focus on personal and school needs;
• Receive financial aid information;
• Explore college/university options and careers;
• Experience personal development through monthly workshops;
• Build leadership skills and a network of friends around Sheboygan County.
Specifically, students will work to increase their self-confidence, learn how to handle new challenges, build study skills and discover how education fits into their future.
Activities run throughout the academic school year from September 2011 to May 2012 and will include weekday workshops. These workshops will be held one weekday a month on the UW-Sheboygan campus from 4 to 6:30 p.m. All workshops are held in Room 2223, located in the UW-Sheboygan Main Building. All participants are encouraged to park in the West Parking Lot and enter through the ACUITY Technology Center.
Each workshop will focus on different skills and experiences necessary in college preparation. A year-end field trip to a selected college or university will be decided by the group.
