For over two decades, the Institute for College Preparation (ICP) has provided intensive, comprehensive, pre-college academic enrichment to middle and high school students enrolled in targeted D.C. public schools. Students begin the program in the 7th grade as a cohort, and continue through their high school graduation. During the program, students are exposed to rigorous course work via a carefully developed curriculum offered to students in Saturday Academy classes and Summer Institute on Georgetown University’s campus. This academic enrichment curriculum is enhanced by academic tutoring and mentorship in coordination with the students’ schools; a summer enrichment program that includes, in successive years, a study abroad experience and a residential college experience; college tours, assistance with test preparation and the college application process; facilitation of connections to other needed resources; and other academic and personal counseling for students and their families to inspire a college-going culture.
