Middle School Program

Middle School Program


The Pre-Collegiate middle school program recruits 7th and 8th-grade students to participate in workshops during the academic year to promote leadership, social-emotional, interpersonal, and academic skills development. Our mission is to prepare students for high school and broaden post-secondary options so that students have greater access to college and other career fields.

Eligibility: This pre-collegiate middle school program is for high-achieving and highly motivated middle school students from Colorado Springs and neighboring counties who meet one of the following criteria: 

  • First-generation college-bound*
  • Military-dependent within the last 10 years**

*A first-generation college student is a student whose parent(s)/guardian(s) did not complete a four-year college or university degree within the United States

**A military-dependent student is a student whose parent(s)/ guardian(s) has been active duty or reserve in any branch of the military
