Camp College

Camp College is an early intervention college preparation program targeted to prepare under-represented students for college. Approximately 120 rising high school seniors (class of 2016) from across the state are invited to attend a three-day, overnight, all-expense paid program. Students will have assistance identifying schools which match their interests and needs; write an application essay and create a resume; navigate the financial aid maze; learn tips, techniques, and strategies for the ACT/SAT; and attend a college fair.  Volunteers from colleges, universities, community based organizations, and high schools across the state may participate.

Camp College 2015 will be held on the campus of Southern Methodist University in Dallas.

If you have any students who may be interested, student applications will be available January 15, 2015. The application deadline includes the an additional student packet, the link to which students will receive with their confirmation email. Please keep in mind that space is limited, so we encourage students to apply as early as possible.

Mentors are needed to help the students understand the college-going process. As a mentor, you will stay in the dorm with the students and help them complete the Camp College curriculum. If you are interested in being a Mentor for this program, applications will be available in early 2015.
