Description

This PowerPoint presentation from the American Youth Policy Forum on Increasing Postsecondary Success highlights the FastStart and College Connection accelerated programs, briefly describing key program components, student profiles, and course completion rates. The FastStart model compresses two to four semesters of developmental math or English courses into a single semester in a program that includes wrap-around services for students, while College Connection’s intensive eight-week or one-semester bridge program provides academic, emotional, and logistical support services to recent high school graduates and GED recipients.
