There’s no better time than now.
Research shows if students are exposed to a college campus they have four times the chance of graduating on time and going to college.
At Inspiring Minds, we like those odds. That’s why college prep is one of our program’s most important components. Students at Inspiring Minds are encouraged to research colleges and careers to make the choice about what’s right for them and their dreams. From filling out college applications to hugging over acceptance letters, our goal is to show IM students that anything’s possible.
Through the organization’s efforts to promote further education, college visits have become an irreplaceable piece of Inspiring Minds. Monthly visits to different colleges across the country are designed to show students that each college is different and that they do have the opportunity to pick the right one for them. Inspiring Minds also monitors their college students with their follow-up program to offer guidance, assistance and motivation.
IM students have toured campuses including:
- Duke University
- Kent State University
- Kenyon College
- The Ohio State University
- Thiel College
- The University of Akron
- University of North Carolina
- University of Pittsburgh
- University of Southern California
- And many more
