Benefits of the Program
Make New Friends while creating a Support System
Relationships form between your instructors, academic advisor, and fellow students to create a support system to help assist you in being successful with your classes.
Students take the same courses with a small teacher/student ratio. This allows the teacher to address the challenges that the student might encounter and provide resources to assist them through those challenges.
Small Study Groups
To review weekly what was covered in class and go over any trouble areas that the group might be experiencing.
