Think College Program
                                                                        

The Think College program emphasizes the value of college and promotes lifelong learning. One of its prime objectives is to increase the college going rates in the urban Appalachian neighborhoods of Dayton and Montgomery county.  What Think College does is to provide mentor training to high school students through Sinclair Community College course work.  These high school mentors receive college credits for each quarter they participate in the program.  The high school  mentors, in turn, work in local elementary schools where they assist elementary school teachers, help children with homework, and provide tutoring services.  In addition, special programs and field trips to Sinclair Community College are provided for the elementary school children.

The goals of Think college are:

 

  • To encourage students to develop a vision of being a college student.
  • To make students aware that a college education increases life choices.
  • To inform students of the variety of courses available in a college and community  college setting.
  • To provide students with information about college admissions and financial aid processes.
  • To provide instruction for developing positive attitudes toward college.
