Harcum College offers its Annual Summer Advance Program
College-transition program part of the US Department of Education’s TRiO Program
Bryn Mawr, PA – This summer, Harcum College will be offering its annual Summer Advance Program (SA), a 7-week residential program designed to introduce recent high school graduates to the college experience and prepare them for the transition into collegiate academics.
Recently, college prep has become both a regional and national focus, as male college attendance has been dropping steadily and freshmen are often unprepared for college-level work. Now is the time of year when seniors traditionally focus on these challenges.
To address these issues, Harcum College offers its SA Program, which is part of the federally funded TRiO Program under the U.S. Department of Education. Designed for eligible students enrolled at Harcum College who demonstrate academic or financial need, the annual program enrolls 20-25 incoming students who take developmental courses and get a general introduction to college. Students who have not yet chosen a college can enroll at Harcum and use this opportunity to hone their classroom and study skills in a supportive setting.
The goal is to familiarize students with college-level courses and develop their skills in a living/learning community setting that encourages study, teamwork and adherence to academic standards.
To be eligible, students must meet at least one of the following criteria: be a first-generation collegian, have a household income that meets Federal TRiO guidelines and a documented disability (physical or learning). The cost is $1,250 and includes room, board and books.

It wasn’t a “big” story. In fact, the article published by the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette last June received little follow-up and even less attention. That’s unfortunate – because it’s a story that explains the anxiety so many Americans express about both Obama’s Affordable Care Act and even “reasonable” gun controls.
