High School Juniors & Seniors: Planning for College?

Get ready for college and work by understanding the way your brain works and developing your own solutions for success.

The School of Education at Pace University announces Headways ‑ an intensive two-week summer program for high school juniors and seniors to explore learning strategies and technology tools that enhance:

  • Organization, Managing Time, Multiple Projects and Deadlines
  • Collaborative Problem-Solving, Creativity and Critical Thinking
  • Attention, Memory and Recall
  • Academic Language, Writing, Research and Presentation Skills

Headways prepares students (including those with learning challenges or disabilities) for the demands of college and work after high school by exploring and understanding their own individual patterns of attention, language, memory and thought processes. Headways will work with students to identify a personalized set of technology tools and digital strategies for academic success. After the program, students will receive a certificate and detailed recommendations for digital strategies that will help them succeed in school and work.

Developed by Pace University professors, learning specialists and college counseling professionals, Headways is grounded in current neuroscience principles to create an engaging, interactive experience that will build on each student’s strengths, interests and challenges. These insights, experiences and skills will help students succeed in school and work beyond high school.  A parent information session focused on what parents need to know to support the transition to college is also included.

The program costs $1,500 and a $150 deposit is due by July 1 to reserve your place. For more
