What is the College Bridge Program?

District 79 has designed a 13 week course that will help recent high school and GED graduates build skills in reading, writing, and math in order to excel on college entrance exams like the ACT and SAT.

Why should you attend?

Passing the college entrance exams helps students avoid taking expensive remedial courses that do not count toward graduation requirements. It saves time and money!

Who is this program for?

The ideal candidate for the College Bridge Program is one who:

  • received their HS or GED diploma between 2009 and 2010

  • has a strong desire to attend college

  • needs help in reading, writing, and/or math

  • had a good attendance record at their high school or GED program

When and where will classes take place?

Classes will start in October 2010 and take place from 4-9 pm Monday through Friday. The program will be offered at two locations, 269 West 35th Street (at 8th Avenue) in Manhattan and 67- 69 Schermerhorn Street in Brooklyn.
