Nineteen 11th graders from the Applied Technology School at Rochester’s Edison Technical and Occupation Center are spending July 12-17 on the College at Brockport campus participating in a leadership institute and discovering how they can make college part of their future.

Betsy Balzano, PhD, distinguished service professor in the Department of Education and Human Development describes the group as “rising 11th graders who took the English 3 Regents course and all of whom passed the English Regents exam. This is a huge accomplishment for these students and it is the result of their hard work, and that of their teachers and Brockport tutors.”

Balzano is part of a group of College and Rochester City School District teachers and administrators who have been working with this particular group of students for two years as part of a program to prepare them to apply, be accepted, and succeed in college.

Some of the workshops included in the week-long in-residence program focus on financial aid, transitioning from high school to college, developing a personal mission statement, etiquette and the art of conversation, and the first-year college experience.
