Entrada Scholars Program
The Entrada Scholars Program at Calvin College offers
ethnic minority high school students a "gateway"
to the future: the opportunity to experience college
learning and living while earning college credit! Entrada
scholars participate in regular summer-term classes
with current Calvin students and spend 4 weeks experiencing
college life firsthand.
specialEvents - Entrada scholars take a 3 or 4
credit hour course along with Calvin College students
and meet the same course requirements as the Calvin
Scholars are assigned an Academic Coach, a trained teacher,
who attends classes with them in the morning and leads
a study period (Academic Coaching session) with the
scholars following the class. In other words, Academic
Coaches model and teach scholars how to be successful
in their specific course and in college in general.
Entrada scholars often do better in their courses than
the regular college students.
