For high school students: Get an early start on college!
College Readiness Academy
In this 10-week program during the spring and fall semesters, we go to partner high schools to preview college-level math and reading/writing to make sure you're ready for college and to prepare you for possible entry into our Dual Enrollment program. In Dual Enrollment, you can earn college credit while you're still in high school. We teach between 160 and 200 students each semester, and we've been doing this since 2009.
B-Power Update, Spring 2019
The Office of Early College Initiatives now partners with seventeen B-Power high schools, and five middle schools. High school students take classes either in our College Readiness Academy or a University of Baltimore Dual Enrollment course. Some of our high school partners include ACCE, The Academy for College and Career Exploration, Baltimore Design School, BLSYW, Baltimore Leadership School for Young Women, Carver, St. Frances Academy, and Western. Our middle school partners include Hampden Elementary/Middle, Midtown Academy, and City Springs. Middle school students get information about college expectations from a UB professor and get a chance to tour UB's campus.
