The 通向成功 Program gives access and 学术 support to students who are 学术ally underprepared, but have demonstrated the potential to succeed at Arcadia. We consider your high school grades, intended major, and standardized test scores (if submitted). The Act 101 portion provides additional support and services to students who are Pennsylvania residents and meet an income criteria.
Students are selected through the admissions process, and are then invited to be a part of the program. 一旦学生被选入我们的课程, they may be required or given the option to participate in our summer bridge program prior to their first year. 在为期五周的暑期桥牌课程中, 学生住在校园里, 参加了三个大学班, and participate in activities and workshops designed to jump start to their college experience. As our students affectionately say “Once Gateway family, always Gateway family!”
The Gateway Program is different than the 真正的证书 Program (for students with intellectual disabilities), 请去阿卡迪亚.edu/real or contact Simon Mohr at 215-572-4095 to get more information about the REAL program.
