GCP provides students with direct access to the program's continually increasing number of partner colleges and universities – a minimum of five partner institutions at any given time – and greater access to post secondary education in general. By the time they graduate, GCP students are not only college-ready, but they also will have earned up to 18 college credits and will be familiar with and mentally prepared for academic and social life on a college campus.
In the GCP program, academic learning does not end with each school year. Every summer, GCP students receive supplemental education and training specific to their grade cohort:
As seniors, GCP students are concurrently enrolled in a local GCP partner college or university, and they complete college English and math courses for credit. Seniors typically spend the summer after graduation in freshman-orientation programs at the college or university at which they will start their undergraduate studies.
GCP participants finish the program with a head start on postsecondary achievement and the academic confidence to succeed.
