The academy’s Cruisin’ to College program provides Grand Rapids Public Schools sophomores and juniors with summer math instruction that allows them to bypass remedial classes at GRCC.
GRPS counselors and teachers identify eligible students who would benefit from the Cruisin’ to College program. After the students take an initial test, they are assigned to a Success Coach. The eight-week program provides math instruction in the mornings with college preparation and career exploration — including college visits and job-shadowing opportunities — in the afternoons. If you’re interested in the program, contact Lorena Aguayo-Marquez at (616) 234-3874 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
“The Cruisin’ to College program prepares students not only for college-level math courses but for the entire college experience,” said David Selmon, associate dean of Academic Outreach. “We are proud to have our work recognized and supported.”
