High School/College Partnership
Kodiak College, University of Alaska Anchorage (AK)
Kodiak College provides early college placement testing to high school juniors and seniors so students and their parents can become more aware of what it means to be college-ready. The college advisors work on site with high school counselors to offer interventions to improve students' scores. If students are juniors, the two advisors recom¬mend senior-year courses that will prepare the student for college-level work. For seniors, the advisors recommend interventions, such as practice testing, college-preparatory pro¬grams, tutoring, or labs to focus on specific skills. When students arrive at Kodiak Col¬lege, they are given assessments to determine their “skill and will” for college success, and advising is based on the results.
