It’s never too early for HISD scholars to start thinking about how their summer plans affect their college career and learning doesn’t have to stop in the summer just because classes end. Right here in Houston, students have an opportunity to participate in a pre-college program focused on literature, the arts, and media through Wonderworks.
Wonderworks is a non-profit organization that works with both the University of Houston and Rice University to provide this exciting summer experience and has opened the application to all 10th, 11th, and 12th grade students to apply. From June to July, you will have a chance to learn from college professors, take classes on a college campus, and even get tips on preparing for the college essay. Students interested in applying must complete the application before May 5, 2014 and financial aid is available, so don’t delay!
For more information, take a look at the 2014 Wonderworks Summer site and download a flyer to share with your family, high school Counselor, and College Access Coordinator.
Your future is in your hands! Have a great Winter Break.
