Preparing Students For College And Career Success

We offers academic enrichment programs to cohort students: Concurrent Enrollment, Pre-College Scholars Summer Sessions, and Senior Seminar. These programs offer students a chance to become stronger college applicants and to prepare for the academic rigors of the following school year and beyond.

Our program partners with UC Berkeley Summer Sessions to offer students the opportunity to enroll in one of three tracks offered through UC Berkeley’s Pre-College Scholars program during the summer. Cohort students going into their senior year and who have a 3.5 GPA (weighted) or higher are eligible to apply. Past courses have included Anthropology, Computer Science, Environmental Earth Sciences, Ethnic Studies, African American Studies, and Greek & Roman Mythology.

EAOP and DCAC are partnering with community colleges around the Bay Area to offer our 10th and 11th grade students the opportunity to enroll in spring courses. This will allow our students to build a competitive college application profile. In addition to the enrolled course, students will attend skill-building seminars focused on navigating college resources, financial literacy and honing professional development and networking skills to successfully transition to college. Students will select from a list of transferable courses that will appear on official transcripts to be reported on college applications.

This seminar will focus on the UC Application and will help prepare you to identify and begin to respond to the Personal Insight Questions.  If you are eligible to apply to a UC campus this Seminar is for you!  If you are considering applying to any college or scholarship that requires a written response, you may find this Seminar helpful. This multi-day event will consist of two webinars a day and all eligible participants will secure ongoing support through the end of July with developing their PIQ responses.
