Bridge to College transition courses provide high school seniors with a dynamic way to prepare for success in college-level work.
- The Situation
- More than one-third of graduating high school seniors are unprepared for the rigor of higher education. These students will be required to enroll in pre-college courses once they enter college, which will cost them time and money and decrease their chances of graduating with a degree.
- How Bridge to College transition courses can help change those odds.
- Washington state is offering students a new way to prepare for college.
Through Bridge to College transition courses, students engage in a different approach to learning math and English language arts.
