State Test Preparation Program
Bringing a different approach to student learning and comprehension, these specialized CAMPs are aligned to State Testing Content. This is done by using one-of-a-kind facilitation strategies, hands-on activities, content competitions, and going above and beyond traditional teaching complementing the work of teachers in the classroom. These CAMPs can be aligned to Senate Bill (SB) 4545.
College 1st has proven success working with elementary and middle school students on their State Test Preparation. Students have recognized the College 1st Program as a practical and reliable resource for State Test Preparation. We work with school district administrators and principals to ensure all instructional activities are aligned with State and Local mandates and policies. The College 1st Program is customized to school district needs, focusing on reinforcing academic content areas and providing students with the knowledge, guidance, and tools for high school, college, and career success.
We are now offering the new College 1st CAMP Hybrid Model with the flexibility to deliver all CAMPs virtually or on-site (if conditions permit). All CAMPs can be aligned to State Test Standards. This hybrid model allows our partners to choose days before the event if they would like their CAMP to be delivered virtually using an online platform, or on-site (if conditions permit) using all social distancing protocols and the highest safety measures. Our partners now have the ability to choose the best delivery method as conditions are constantly changing, keeping both options available for their students. These Hybrid State Test Prep CAMPs are available at the Elementary, Middle School, and High School levels.
