BEAM College Prep
Calling all rising 11th and 12th grade BEAM students! BEAM is running a 5-day college prep program just for you.
What will be covered?
Basics of college admissions.
Financial aid: how to pay for college.
How to choose the right college for you.
Standardized tests: what to take and when.
(for 12th graders) Writing an essay for a college application.
You will also get some work to do at home during the week, and after the week you will leave with a plan on how to have all of your college applications done in time!
When and where is it?
The course will be held the weekdays of Monday, August 19–Friday, August 23 from 10am–4pm, with a break for lunch. (We are providing a simple pizza lunch each day; you're welcome to also bring food from home.) We expect attendance at the full program, but email Ayinde at firstname.lastname@example.org if you can't make the whole time.
The program will be at the Downtown Conference Center at Pace University (157 William Street on the corner of William and Ann Street). If transportation will be a hardship, BEAM can provide a free Metrocard. See below.
