When & Where
n the average, a college admission officer may receive over 3,000 applicants. Many applicants will have focused on obtaining high grade point averages and SAT scores. This is becoming the norm. However, studies show that colleges and universities are looking for more than the norm. They are looking for students with exceptional leadership skills. Through our leadership training and community service activities, TLA students will develop the skills admissions officers’ desire.
“Of 2,654 colleges and universities surveyed nationwide, statistics state that one out of every four students will drop out of school by their second year.” Surviving college can be challenging. At TLA, we give you the insight on what to expect when going off to college. You will go on campus visits to get an idea of what college life is like. Also, TLA summer camp counselors are seasoned college students who assist in conducting exciting workshops and share their experiences with you.
“Picture yourself in a room with nine other college students. Before you graduate, at least six of those students will have changed their major at least once. And one or two of the remaining four will likely leave school regretting the major they chose and wishing they too had switched to another major.” (monsterTrak) As a TLA student, you will take field trips to various companies to explore careers. You will meet and hear from professionals who will visit and speak on the demands and qualifications of various careers. Our goal is to help you explore careers that may interest you – before you go to college.
