Preparing for College: Linking K-12 Students to College

Programs for high school students

CollegeNOW! at Minneapolis Community and Technical College helps high school students prepare for college and explore careers through a variety of programs, including:

Our vision is to collaborate with public, alternative and charter schools to prepare high school students for college and help students acquire the necessary skills to be successful in their college and professional careers.

Our mission is achieved via collaboration with Minnesota public and charter schools. We train and educate students, teachers, counselors, administrators and parents on current labor market trends, college and career readiness standards and life skills that promote college and career success.

Additionally, we provide ongoing professional development to high school teachers and counselors so that they can help their students meet college readiness standards, earn PSEO and concurrent college credits, take early Accuplacer assessment tests and complete summer college-readiness course work.
