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, Summer 2022
The Office of Early College Initiatives is currently running its Summer Academy with partners Code in the Schools, KIPP Forward, and Building STEPS. Nearly 150 students are on campus in college readiness programming, coding classes, and UBalt Dual Enrollment courses, all while being paid as part of the MOED's YouthWorks program.
