Prior to their first semester at Villanova, AAP students participate in the AAP Pre-College Summer Program which focuses on:
• English 1975 (3-credit course)
• Academic Skills/Instruction
• Enrichment Workshops
• College Reading and Writing Workshops
It's not all just work! Students participate in fun activities throughout the program.
A comprehensive program, the English 1975 course develops analytical reading skills and critical thinking, enhances writing skills, and encourages productive research skills. English 1975 is offered for 3 credits as well as a grade. Both classroom instruction and personal conferences with instructors remedy some of the difficulties many students encounter during their first semester of college.
The science component provides a general overview of fundamental concepts in chemistry and biology, and lab experience. The mathematics course explores calculus and statistical concepts.
The counseling and conferences with faculty members tend to alleviate student apprehension and fears associated with attending college.
There are no costs associated with the AAP Pre-College Program.
