We regret to announce that our upcoming Ready. Set. Go! Summer College 101 program has been canceled. While we are upset that we are unable to provide this program in 2020, our students and staff members' safety will always be our number one priority. For any inquiries about the program or it's cancellation, please email We look forward to continuing to provide this program in 2021.
