Success Sessions

Success Sessions provide students time to meet as a group, hear important information and ideas, and learn strategies and skills that help them succeed in college courses and complete their college degree.

Students are expected to attend all Success Sessions. They are often offered on Friday afternoons when there are few college classes taking place at SC4.  Success Sessions for grade 13 students are offered Friday morning and afternoon to accommodate their differing schedules. Information on each upcoming Success Session is shared with students and parents via email.

Some of the topics addressed at Success Sessions include:

  • Differences between high school and college

  • Planning for an associate degree

  • Awareness of academic support resources as a BWMCA and SC4 student

  • Choosing college classes and the registration process

  • Awareness of other departments and programs at SC4

  • Planning ahead:

    • Identifying future college options

    • Credit transferability

    • The college application process

    • Paying for College: Financial Aid

  • Refining career choices
