Jump start your College Excel experience! Our End of Summer Leadership Course helps students reduce the anxiety associated with transitioning to a new setting. This course is led by a team of our top life and academic coaches. Students spend three adventure filled weeks exploring Oregon as they learn to construct a supportive peer community and practice self and group leadership skills.
The Leadership Course includes renting a house on the Oregon Coast, and participating in engaging activities such as surfing, horseback riding, exploring and an interactive tour of some of the top colleges in the Northwest. Another house is rented south of Bend as home base, while exploring different areas of Oregon and participate in volunteer projects that give back to the community.
The emphasis of this course is on interpersonal communication, problem solving, executive function skill building and emotional regulation techniques. Transitions can be difficult and this course is the perfect start to a successful College Excel experience.
College Excel is a residential college support program that works with young adults who have diverse learning needs and require extra support academically and personally in order to be successful in college. Students receive daily support from our team of specialists while they earn college credits at one of our local colleges. Located in beautiful Bend, Oregon, we provide students, ages 18-25, the opportunity to experience college in a supportive, structured and supervised setting. Participants must have graduated from high school or have a GED.
