Give us 5 weeks and we'll help you complete two college-level seminars in Math and English at ACC. You'll also meet gurus who can be your guide to the ins and outs of the college experience. Best of all, it's completely free.


The only criteria for admittance into the program is college enrollment for Fall 2023 and never having earned college credit for a Math or English course. 


  • Consider this a soft-launch. College classes are meant to shape and challenge you, here's a safe space to try it out.
  • Experience wider friend circles, meet people who freak out about the same things you do, and see what new doors could open by finishing a college degree.
  • You should feel like someone has your back. We're there to get your college career kicked off in the best way.
