Off to College: a free program for high school students!

Beginning in Fall 2019, RESA will be offering two meeting delivery options: In person at LMC (Benton Harbor Campus) and online through Google Hangouts.

Off to College is a free high school program designed by Berrien RESA and Lake
Michigan College to help students prepare for their future. Off to College requires
a 2-year commitment from the student (and his or her family). During the junior
and senior years, students will participate in monthly seminars at Lake Michigan
College, Benton Harbor campus. The seminars will focus on skills needed to be
successful in college.

Candidates for the Off to College program should be curious, care about their future, work hard, have a positive attitude and want to go to continue their education after high school.

Students from high schools in Berrien County will be selected to participate in Off to College. Once selected, you will work and learn with these students to prepare yourselves for college as a team.  Together, you will have access to college campuses, listen to guest speakers, learn how to study, and understand what resources are available at the college level (including financial aid). At the end of the program, you will have an understanding of college expectations and be ready to start earning a degree!

How do I plan for the transition to college, trade, or technical school?
