College Access

College Access Tour, PN students_ 2017

Phipps Neighborhoods’ College Access program assists young people as they develop collegiate plans while establishing a continuum of educational, social, and career-oriented support through their high school career.

To better prepare students for secondary education and their post-High School careers, our College Access curriculum focuses on academic support, financial counseling, and confidence building related to collegiate academic and social challenges. Classes meet twice a week to help students build better academic habits, prepare their college application portfolio through civic engagement, regional campus tours, and more.

In all aspects of the program, each student receives individualized attention from Phipps Neighborhoods’ staff. Our College and Career Counselor helps students create an personalized plan, as well as work with their families as needed.
