What is Chester County Futures?
Passport to College is an academic enrichment program for 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. It is our one-to-one academic advisory sessions between students and staff that creates a relationship of trust and encouragement that enables our students to remain focused on their goals. 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, they provide:
- Refurbished laptops for high school juniors and seniors
- New Laptops for college freshman
- Other necessary tools, such as USB drives and calculators
