Future Comets Program

Future Comets Program

Get a head start preparing for college by participating in the Future Comets Program for middle- and high-school students. The Future Comets Program helps students with math enrichment classes, leadership development workshops, and activities designed to introduce students to STEM careers. The students enter the program as rising 8th graders entering Algebra I in the fall and participate in summer camps and Future Comets Saturday sessions offered on-campus through high school graduation. The goal of the program is to help students graduate from high school ready to enroll in a rigorous college curriculum.
