New Frontiers’ Individualized College Transition Plan is a unique program for students that have been accepted to, and are getting ready to attend college. Students will work one-on-one with their coach to gain a better understanding of the differences between high school and college, as well as identify the resources available on the campus they will be attending. Students will develop strategies and systems to access resources on their respective campus while focusing on five critical skill areas:
It is important for students transitioning to college to have key foundational knowledge and skills to be able to comprehend text, write fluently, and perform basic math functions. Students develop such skills with their individual coaches and use the backdrop of their academic responsibilities to develop these skills.
Residential Life & Independent Living
For most of our students, going away to college will be their first time living alone or with roommates. We customize our approach to each student to ensure a smooth college transition. Whether they need help learning the basics of cooking and cleaning, or how to get along with roommates, New Frontiers will help them succeed.
In addition to these skills, college transition topics include:
- How to break down college syllabi.
- Scheduling, time management, and organization of aspects of college such as classes, free time, studying, etc.
- How to get involved in campus clubs and activities.
- Living with a roommate.
- Self-advocacy at intake meetings.
- Accessing accommodations.
- Self-monitoring, help-seeking, and the identification of support available on campus.
