The 5c Experience

Creative, Cool, Community, College, Camp
  • A two-week summer program for incoming 6th to 8th graders to help them learn about college through project-based classes, connections with college mentors, and engagement in a dynamic college setting.
  • The focus is on STEM, performing arts, career exploration, academic success skills, and wellness. 
  • The program is designed for first generation college students, students from disadvantaged backgrounds and students of color.

The Golden Eagle Training (G.E.T.) Strong Academy
  • Two weeks of intensive career exploration to incoming high school seniors during the summer. 
  • These students complete a 2-unit college course on campus which allows them to gain confidence in identifying careers that matches their interests and developing a plan for what their next steps will be after high school.
