 What Do We Do?

College is complicated and alien to a lot of students. Unless they have family members who went to college or actively seek out the information, the basic facts about what college is and how it works are hard to grasp. UCAN is all about teaching students the operational knowledge that grown-ups take for granted but are not self-evident to high schoolers.

We break the program into 8 weekly “meets” that cover everything from “What is College?”, to Financial Aid, to writing a personal statement, to how to choose housing.
