My Students

Our students in the college project are excited about learning leadership skills, college requirements, financial aid, and majors of study at various colleges. Our students have taken Advanced Placement courses, SAT exams and attended leadership workshops to prepare themselves for their post secondary education. Our students are under served and are at the top in their schools. We have selected twenty students which have proven to be responsible, reliable and respectful.

Our students are excited about our project and have the integrity and character which we were looking for in our group.

They completed all the requirements to be a member of our college project and are committed to attend our monthly meetings and complete the assigned tasks. Our students are learning the significance of collaborating, connecting and communicating. They also are gaining fundraising, leadership and teamwork skills.

My Project

Bridge To College is providing an opportunity of a lifetime for under served first generation high school students to visit and tour "Ivy League" colleges in New York. Our twenty students have been attending leadership workshops where they are learning about leadership, SAT preparation, fundraising, "Keys to Writing a College Essay, and learning college readiness skills.

Our students will visit Harvard, Yale, Brown, Univ.

of Penn, Columbia, MIT, Brandeis and Juilliard School of the Arts. The students will learn admission requirements, areas of study at the various colleges, and financial aid available to them. They will also visit the Statue of Liberty, the 911 Memorial and attend a live Broadway play.

Grades 9-12
Nearly all students from low‑income households
