College Bound is a three-week summer program primarily for low-income and/or first generation Dedham Middle School students who are currently in Grade 7 and entering Grade 8 in the Fall of 2014. The goal of College Bound is to excite students about college, expose them to various careers and encourage them to lead healthy lives and become leaders in their communities. During the first week of the program, students will live at Regis College and experience the life of a college student. Students will learn how to live with a roommate, participate in Computer Science and Critical Thinking courses, write essays, share ideas during class debates, play games, attend career panel discussions, and enjoy nightly dance and karaoke parties. Students will also eat three delicious and nutritious meals a day in the cafeteria. During the second week of the program, students will participate in college tours across New England and in job shadow days around Dedham. During the 3rd week of the program, the students will partner with Ripples of Hope and conduct community service projects in Dedham.
