Graduating seniors can boost math, reading skills to prep for college this summer

GRCC — Graduating high school seniors will have the chance to boost math and reading skills in the Bridges to College – Raider Ready program this summer, helping them prepare for GRCC or another college.

The new program will be offered in two sessions in both Kent and Ottawa counties. The program will predominantly be offered on the GRCC Main Campus and the GRCC Lakeshore Campus in the Midtown Center. Some parts of the sessions will be offered online and the college is providing use of a laptop.

“The pandemic created challenges for both students and educators,” said GRCC President Bill Pink in a press release. “With this program, many students will benefit from both a refresher in foundational skills, as well as information that will prepare them for their college journey. Bridges to College – Raider Ready is one more way GRCC is serving its communities.”

Students also will work with college navigators, helping prepare them for the higher education experience.

The program is open to all high school graduates of the class of 2020 or 2021 who are planning to attend a college in the fall. 

The first session is planned to run from June 8 to July 6, and the second from July 12 to Aug. 12. Students will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis.Information is available at Bridges to College-Raider Ready, email at bridgestocollege@grcc.edu and phone at (616) 234-3388.
