COLLEGE PROGRAM

Why should I join?

A college degree isn’t just the best way to get a good paying job, it’s a chance to explore ideas and the world in a supportive environment. The College Program at Grace Outreach is designed to help you get into college and to support you while you get your degree. Our virtual College Prep classes help you get ready to start college. Our instruction is designed to familiarize you with college-level work and to establish good study habits.

Classes

We currently offer 4 college prep class sessions throughout the year:

  • Spring I (January-April)

  • Spring II (May-June)

  • Summer

  • Fall (September – December)

Tutoring, Mentorship, and Community Events

We mentor you on scheduling, classes, scholarships, and transferring to 4-year schools. We tutor you through virtual classes and additional one-on-one support. Once enrolled in college, you can come back for tutoring assistance with your college classes by making appointments with College Program staff! Our community is one of the best parts of Grace Outreach. The College Program hosts quarterly alumni gatherings designed to bring current and former students together to share experiences.

The College and Career Bridge Program

The College and Career Bridge Program is a program blending our college and career support together, as most of our students need to work during college. The program meets a growing need for individuals to receive ongoing college, career and technology training after they achieve their High School Equivalency or High School Diploma. This blended program helps students navigate college and align education choices to defined career paths. The College and Career Bridge empowers students to attain their goals and achieve economic independence

For college bound students who speak English as a second language, CLIP is an option for ESL students who prefer a full-time immersion approach to their English language studies that does not draw upon their financial aid allocation, and is offered at the beginning, intermediate and advanced levels. CLIP is designed primarily for first-time freshmen with English language needs who have not yet passed the CUNY Assessment Tests in Reading and/or Writing
