Interactive, project-based classes.

Your program will be a mix of class sessions with your instructors, and time to work on your own or in a small group. Every workshop is designed to be as interactive as possible. Your non-credit workshops are designed to introduce you to the key concepts of various academic fields through project-based learning, often through work in small groups. 

College knowledge sessions.

A few times a week, you will have the opportunity to attend small-group skill-building sessions to build your college readiness, or to meet with various Temple departments to learn more about getting into college, paying for college, and taking advantage of academic and social opportunities once you are there. While information presented in these seminars will be delivered by Temple staff, much of the information will be transferrable to your college search generally.
