Want to know what it’s like to live and learn on a college campus?
Then join us at Georgia College and get the inside scoop on college life away from home before you take the plunge!For the first two weeks in June you will be going to class, finding out what resident life is like, eating in our dining rooms, meeting our faculty and students, and learning to manage your newfound independence. Learn about admissions policies, get help with financial aid questions, and join in on one-on-one workshops where you will meet friendly members of our campus community who will help you navigate college academics and campus life.
In case you’re wondering, it’s not all work and no play at Georgia College!
Between classes, workshops and out-of-class projects, you will have a host of activities and events planned to keep you busy. From relaxing by the pool, self-defense classes, yoga and rope climbing to movie nights and trips off campus, you’ll be amazed at the activities and events that you will have access to in college.
Between doing your own laundry, working on your class projects, taking in the scene in downtown historic Milledgeville, which is walking distance from your on-campus housing, and making new friends and mentors, your days here will be full!
Why College Readiness Academy?We want you to succeed in college!
It’s not just being away from home that’s challenging.
- Your classes will be different and more difficult than in high school.
- You will be in a new environment.
- You will have new and different daily responsibilities.
- You will need to learn to balance school, life, finances, social events and other priorities as you take this first step into adulthood.
GC’s College Readiness Academy will give you the tools to do these things and more, whether you decide to come to Georgia College or not.
You will learn about all the standard services that colleges and universities provide for student success and learn how to use them to succeed in your first year away from home. College campuses are set up for you to succeed, and we want you to take your first step with confidence.
You will be enrolled in two non-credit college classes, and for two weeks you will be engaged in college level academics with out-of-class assignments, in-class projects and presentations. You will also work within the community and on-campus creating, researching and completing your projects.
