WCDC's College Prep Program is sponsored by BNY Mellon Charitable Trusts and Holcim. The program is a partnership with Rutgers University - Camden, UMDNJ-Stratford, Kaplan Test Prep and local high schools. It provides free SAT prep classes and financial aid workshops for Camden City & County 11th graders who are college bound.
Each year, Woodland Community Development Corporation (WCDC) offers 10-week SAT prep courses for Camden City/County 11th graders. Held at UMDNJ from February through April, the Kaplan-designed program prepares juniors to successfully take the SAT. In addition, students are given valuable information about future summer internship opportunities and job readiness skills training.
Seniors who have completed the Camden County Spring 2013 SAT prep course participate in College Admissions workshops during Fall 2013. Hosted by UMDNJ in Stratford, New Jersey, students become familiar with the college application process (including essay writing and financial aid/FAFSA) with the goal of helping them achieve their dream of a post-secondary education at the college or university of their choice.
