The EOPS Summer Institute is a summer bridge college readiness program designed to prepare graduating high school seniors and current juniors for the transition from high school to college. The program is a six-week academic college readiness that helps prepare students for life as a college student. Through academic preparatory classes and an extended Orientation to College class, SI grads complete the program ready to be successful college students. The program combines academic advancement, with community building and fun activities (e.g., free field trip to UC Berkeley and free community pizza lunches) to help students build friendships and get ready for life as a college student.

If you are looking for a way to bridge the gap between high school and college, the Summer Institute may be the perfect opportunity for you. To enroll in the program, visit the EOPS Summer Institute link below:
