Our staff works with the students and their parents to identify scholarships for college and how to fill out federal financial aid forms. 


SAT & ACT Prep: Each year junior and senior students are provided a prep course to help them with the ACT and SAT exam.


College Tours: (click here to look at possible colleges around the country)
We take pride in offering our participants the unique opportunity to visit premiere institutions. Students tour campuses and visit with faculty and students to learn about their institution. This gives students a chance to get a “feel” for the type of college they would be most comfortable attending.


Each year students tour various colleges and universities. Along the way, students are given a chance to visit museums, cultural festivals, and educational/historical sites. Students have toured colleges in Colorado, Utah, New Mexico, Arizona, California, Idaho, Nevada, Illinois, and of course Montana.


College Application and Selection
Each student is guided through the confusing maze of how to select a college/university. Topics addressed are: how to write a college entrance essay; what criteria to use to select a school; how to complete the application process; and, how to develop the skills needed to survive in college.


Scholastic Advising
Our staff works with  high school counselors  to help plan the academic future of each participant.
