The 10,000 Degrees College Opportunities Summit is a summer college success program that focuses on supporting rising high school seniors prepare for their college journey through a *FREE* weeklong series of virtual workshops and activities with recent college graduates. We firmly believe in helping students reach their full potential regardless of race, ethnicity, gender, documentation status, or socioeconomic background.
Students will Zoom in virtually from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. Monday through Friday on the following weeks:
WHEN IS THE DEADLINE TO REGISTER?
To receive Zoom access information and workshop materials, students attending the July 26-30 session must register by July 22, 2021, and students attending the August 9-13 session must register by August 5, 2021.
There will be a Parent Night for both sessions! Parent’s and Guardian’s are invited to learn…
Parent Night for parents and guardians of students who are attending July 26-30 will be on July 28 at 6pm.
Parent Night for parents and guardians of students who are attending August 9-13 will be on August 11 at 6pm.
Parent Night will be presented in both English and Spanish.
CAN I PARTICIPATE IN OTHER “COLLEGE ACCESS” PROGRAMS AT THE SAME TIME?
Yes! If a student participates in another college access program that provides similar services to 10,000 Degrees, they can still participate in the 10,000 Degrees College Opportunities Summit, provided that it does not conflict with other summer programming offered by other college access organizations.
WHAT HAPPENS AFTER THE 10,000 DEGREES COLLEGE OPPORTUNITIES SUMMIT?
Students attending a partner high school site will have access to *FREE* year-round workshops and support from a near-peer 10,000 Degrees Fellow. Students will receive email updates for upcoming financial aid workshops, college application workshops, and other events to support their matriculation to college.
