Passport to College
Passport to College is an academic enrichment program for economically disadvantaged high school students in Oxford, Phoenixville, Kennett, and Coatesville Area High Schools. Chester County Futures equips and empowers our students for academic and career success through after-school classes, real-world learning opportunities, and increased access to technology.
After-School Academic Enrichment Classes
Passport to College offers weekly academic enrichment classes conveniently held in area high schools. Curriculum includes activities and discussions on relevant, grade-appropriate topics, such as study skills, financial literacy, communication and collaboration, SAT prep, college selection and application, FAFSA support, and career exploration.
Real World Learning Opportunities
Students experience a wide variety of learning opportunities that not only develop life and career skills, but also adds value in the competitive college application process. We offer learning opportunities, such as: corporate site visits and workshops, community volunteerism projects, Futures College and Career Expo, and college tours and workshops.
Increased Access to Technology
Economically disadvantaged students generally do not have great access to advanced technology. To support our students’ academic success, we provide:
Refurbished laptops for high school juniors and seniors
New Laptops for college freshman
Other necessary tools, such as USB drives and calculators
