Cal State L.A.'s Eighth Annual
California State University, Los Angeles will present ÂCollege: Making It Happen,Â an important educational conference informing parents how to best prepare their middle school-aged children (ages 11-14) for college. There will presentations from different colleges and universities, a parent panel discussion, and a financial aid workshop.
The ÂCollege: Making It HappenÂ conference is sponsored by the Precollegiate Academic Development (PAD) Program. The PAD Program is designed to assist middle school and high school students in acquiring the necessary skills and abilities to succeed in institutions of higher education. We empower students through the development of mathematical competencies, reading comprehension, and writing skills using trained Cal State L.A. student tutors. The PAD Program provides tutoring services to over 2500 students throughout the Los Angeles, Pasadena, Glendale, and Alhambra school districts.
