College Readiness and Success
From 2010 and 2018, the College Readiness and Success Program offered Pikes Peak area high school students a series of workshops designed to address a range of topics including college success, self advocacy, financial literacy, pre-collegiate resources, and retention. This comprehensive workshop series consisted of four workshops held throughout the year at higher education institutions at no cost to students and families.
After 8 successful years, the program was transitioned to operate under the University of Colorado Colorado Springs (UCCS). UCCS operates the Pre-Collegiate Development Program (PCDP), which is designed to give high school students an opportunity to gain college credit, academic skills, peer mentorship, and exposure to higher education through concurrent enrollment, professional development, and community service learning.
Modeled after the College Readiness and Success Program, PCDP now includes The College Experience in which students participate in workshops held at various higher education institutions.
