Our effective program model is designed to foster success—from college selection and applications to college academics and life.
COLLEGE STYLE CLASSES
Students actively participate in intimate and engaging roundtable Socratic seminars, gaining knowledge, confidence, and the ability to succeed in every area of college life.
Our academic sessions emphasize mastery of English and Math content. The English experience relies on intensive one-on-one interaction between students and teachers, while Math instruction focuses primarily on algebraic concepts and math literacy, with a heavy emphasis on problem-solving techniques.
COLLEGE ADVISING SESSIONS
Students are guided through the college selection, application, financial aid, and transition process. Each summer session targets key activities that students must complete to successfully enroll in and complete college.
DYNAMIC COHORT MODEL
The Cohort Model begins when students apply during their 10th grade year and follows them through college. Students forge lasting relationships and become part of a unique peer group with similar academic goals.
POST GRADUATION COLLEGE PERSISTANCE
DCS support scholars’ continued achievement upon entering college. Delaware College Scholars tracks for accountability, celebrates college success, and aids in problem solving throughout scholars’ college experience.
