Skagit Valley College launches first annual Summer Bridge program

Jul 12, 2023

SVC Summer Bride, ¡Pa’ delante!

Skagit Valley College is launching a new program for first-generation, underrepresented graduating seniors this summer.

Summer Bridge – Pa’ delante – is a free program designed to support graduating seniors who plan to attend SVC this fall. The program will take place Aug. 1-31, with a mandatory orientation on July 31.

“The summer bridge program presents an amazing opportunity for first-generation college students to receive more support and guidance as they transition from high school to higher education,” said Director of Student Equity and Inclusion, Rick Flores. “This cohort will experience their first college classes with a strong support system to ensure that they don’t become overwhelmed this fall which will help improve their academic success rate.”

Summer Bridge participants will: 

  • Receive free college credits;
  • Be a part of a cohort of 75 incoming SVC students;
  • Receive transition experience to support starting college in the fall;
  • Receive ‘College Success Skills’ as part of a culturally relevant curriculum;
  • Connect with mentors;
  • Learn about student engagement opportunities; and
  • Receive in-person orientation support, including technology access and setup, referrals to special programs, and initial registration into classes.

All graduating high school seniors who are eligible for Summer Bridge are welcome to apply. Apply now as space is limited.
