GRCC offering free summer program to boost skills, prepare for college

Grand Rapids Community College is launching a free summer program for graduating high school seniors to help boost math and reading skills before they attend GRCC or another college.

Bridges to College – Raider Ready will be offered in two sessions in both Kent and Ottawa counties. The program will predominantly be offered on the GRCC Main Campus and the GRCC Lakeshore Campus in the Midtown Center. Some parts of the sessions will be offered online and the college is providing use of a laptop.

“The pandemic created challenges for both students and educators,” GRCC President Bill Pink said. “With this program, many students will benefit from both a refresher in foundational skills, as well as information that will prepare them for their college journey. Bridges to College – Raider Ready is one more way GRCC is serving its communities.”

Students also will work with college navigators, helping prepare them for the higher education experience.

The program is open to all high school graduates of the class of 2020 or 2021 who are planning to attend a college in the fall.
