Graduates may leave us. But we won’t leave them.
Northbridge College Success was established to help graduates transition to life after high school, and was created specifically for post-secondary students with learning differences. Northbridge is an academic support group that minimizes anxiety for students who are pursuing higher educational and vocational opportunities. The program offers guidance, tutoring and classes that build confidence in the classroom and help assure the completion of their academic programs. Students enrolled in community colleges, four-year colleges, technical schools and vocational programs are eligible to apply.
Students enrolled in Northbridge work closely with an Academic Specialist on a weekly basis. Topics include time management, long-term planning, goal setting, organization of class materials and working with the appropriate Disability Resource Centers to ensure accommodations are met.
Each student is provided three hours of weekly tutoring to help meet individual class needs. Small group tutoring is also available by subject area for Northbridge students enrolled in the same course. Our tutors follow the same format during each session to increase productivity and establish routines. Tutors support students with studying for tests, editing essays and creating study plans.
Northbridge students are invited to attend workshops throughout the school year that focus on specific areas key to a student’s success. Workshops are one hour and are taught by Academic Specialists that understand the tools needed to achieve the greatest results.
Northbridge contributes to the educational experience by providing many opportunities outside of the school day. The social calendar is packed with activities throughout the year to keep students connected and engaged in a positive way. The friendships and experiences Northbridge students create are an important part of being a young adult in college.

I attended community college classes during my senior year. Because of this experience, I feel prepared for this next chapter of my education.
