We provide academic and enrichment services in mathematics and the sciences that give Pell Grant-eligible, first-generation students the competitive edge necessary to enter rigorous college programs in the STEM disciplines. As a supplement to academics, the program provides a wide variety of services and activities that are of a personal, career and cultural nature.
The federally funded program is year-round, with an additional summer residential program that offers students the opportunity to have a college experience, including living in dorms and taking classes during the day.
