Once accepted, students are divided into “cohorts” (or groups), where they are assigned a coach who serves as their guide through high school and college. MEECA participants start their first terms at community colleges with a “college survival” course taught by their coach that covers the how-to of signing up for classes and finding various on-campus resources. After that, students in a cohort enroll in the courses that meet their individual needs, though the goal is to try to keep them together with other MEECA participants as much as possible. The more they get to know each other, the more they’ll help each other out — which increases the likelihood of success for all.
MEECA students will complete the remaining requirements towards high school graduation (and accumulating credits towards an Associates Degree) at their local community college.
