Seven Hills Charter having trouble gaining acceptance for College Week

Print More

Nearly 600 Worcester students are looking for a college to attend this summer.

But only for one week.

The administration of Seven Hills Charter Public School is seeking a local college or university to host its annual College Week, a weeklong early introduction to college life for students in grades 1 through 8.

In what has become one of Seven Hills’ most anticipated events of the year, College Week gives students access to college classrooms and lecture halls, dining halls and a variety of on-campus activities, and allows those students to explore areas of study and speak with college students.

Seven Hills students, according to school officials, gain invaluable experience from College Week.

“Too many of our students say, ‘I wish I could go to college.’ We encourage them to consider college more of a reality rather than a dream,” fourth-grade science and math teacher Brennan Green said. “College Week helps us achieve that. Instead of hoping they can go to college, our curriculum for the year is based on the idea that they will go to college.”
