Cochran, Effie Papatzikou; Collins, Carla
The Enrichment College Preparatory Program, an Elementary and Secondary Education Act, Title VII bilingual demonstration project at a Manhattan, New York City, high school, completed the final year of a two-year funding cycle in June 1983. The program, which provided cultural enrichment and advanced academic experiences to 160 intellectually gifted, bilingual students, consisted of three major components: (1) special Scholastic Aptitude Tests (S.A.T.) mathematics and English courses for 11th and 12th grade limited English proficiency students; (2) college advisement, consisting of workshops and conferences designed to assist students and their parents in choosing colleges, applying for entrance and for student loans, preparing for admissions interviews, and planning visits to college campuses; and (3) cultural activities organized for students in all grades to enhance social awareness by exposure to various artistic experiences. Students' test scores, college admissions, and reactions from cultural institutions visited clearly indicated that the program made great strides in its two-year existence. (Author/GC)
