High school juniors and seniors will have an opportunity to be immersed in the college experience in a three-day summer program hosted July 6-8 at Wilmington College.

The college’s ACCESS (Academic College Campus Experience for Student Success) program gives students a jump on attaining college preparatory skills that include testing based upon personality and learning styles, an ACT prep class and gaining insight into succeeding in college and exploring career goals.

“ACCESS is a college campus experience in the truest sense,” said Ken Lydy, WC associate vice president for student affairs. “After completing this program, high school juniors and seniors will have a better understanding of the strengths and areas in need of improvement as they head down their path toward college and, ultimately, a career.”

Student participants will spend two nights in campus housing, learn about the college’s facilities, and engage with current WC students, faculty and administrators.

ACCESS offers both in-class and extracurricular, hands-on activities such as working with various areas of study, volunteer service and recreational activities.

The cost is $175 and includes all meals, housing, a T-shirt, materials and program activities. Registration can be accomplished at the ACCESS page on WC’s website: www.wilmington.edu/academics/access/.
