College Excel, the nation's leading residential college support program, is pleased to announce the following:
- Currently enrolling for the winter term 2017, which begins on Monday, January 9, 2017

College Excel, a coaching-based college support program, offers rolling admission. The ideal time for students to start our program is at the beginning of each academic term. The winter term begins on Monday, January 9, 2017, which aligns with the academic calendar of our partner college where our students immediately begin earning transferable college credits.
During fall quarter, Program Manager Peter Allen, MS, NCC, began a "Wilderness Therapy to College" support group, specifically aimed at students who are transitioning out of wilderness therapy programs and can greatly benefit from the support offered from not just staff but also their peers.
Lastly, College Excel offered a new seminar this fall titled "Digital Overload," taught by former college professor, Laurie Honda, Ph.D. In addition to taking for-credit courses at our local college, College Excel students also take a series of proprietary seminars focused on holisitic living skills, developing skill sets for effectively navigating stress and anxiety, independent living skills and much more. The "digital overload" seminar will be a regular addition to our current seminar offerings.
