Foundations Asheville, a young adult transitional program helping young men ages 18-24, offers a variety of academic options for students who wish to continue their education.
Foundations students come from a diverse set of learning backgrounds. The team at Foundations helps students carve a path that integrates individual histories and goals.
Many students at Foundations choose to pursue coursework on campus at Asheville Buncombe Community Technical College (AB Tech), a top community college with rolling admissions and multiple start dates for classes.
“At AB Tech, one may pursue dual enrollment to obtain both high school and college credits, engage individual classes while determining a longer term track, or fully enroll in one of their outstanding two-year programs,” comments Natalie Bryenton, Director of Education and Career Development at Foundations Asheville. “All AB Tech credits are transferable one-to-one within the state of North Carolina, and most are accepted nationwide. If a student is in need of just a few credits before obtaining a high school diploma, we provide the option of online classes through Straighterline.com, so that we may expedite their movement into collegiate-level learning.”
At Foundations, students are coached by trained staff members on an individual basis to help them get the most out of their studies. In addition to staff providing guidance for students at home, AB Tech offers support services that work with students to make classroom adjustments based on their backgrounds.
“As the education director, I may touch in with professors to assess a student’s academic advocacy, investment, and performance,” says Bryenton. “Several of our Foundations scholars are in class together, so they are able to challenge and support each other. An educational environment is a thought-provoking platform for maturation and the development of discipline, time management, organization, and accountability - all critical elements for a successful transition to independence.”
