About Summer Sessions

College simulation

Unlike our Day Session, the Summer Session places participants in a college setting for a full week, providing them with a realistic experience (complete with common challenges).

Executive functioning skills

Effective executive functioning is a critical aspect of succeeding in college. Participants going through the Summer Session will be taught key skills such as organization, planning/creating a schedule, and time management.

Self-advocacy skills 

College success is largely determined by the ability to self-advocate. College is typically the first time many students have such an increased level of independence, and many can be lost once they’re responsible for taking care of themselves. The Summer Session gives students all the tools they’ll need to make sure they’re accessing the supports available to them.
