Enrichment Programs

There are so many programs out there and you can spend hours searching through the Web for one. I decided to put most, if not all, on one page for you like a database.
It's so important if you can have your adolescent attend one of these programs. It not only prepares them for college but it gives them a better chance to be accepted into a really good college program. Admission counselors make a note of this when reviewing a candidate. If money is a problem, contact the college to see if they have need-based scholarships. Some of them do!
