Pre-college Engineering Program for Middle Schoolers

The Salt Lake Community College Pre-college Engineering Program (PREP) is a NO COST seven-week summer school that challenges high-achieving 6th, 7th, and 8th grade students who are interested in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). Underrepresented youth, females, and first-generation students are encouraged to apply. PREP is committed to providing stimulating community-empowered programs for underrepresented and first-generation students to confidently pursue college studies and career training. 

The consecutive Middle & Junior high school summer school provides three summers of rigorous academic instruction, experiential learning, hands-on projects, challenging homework assignments, career awareness speakers, field trips as well as experience with the arts, humanities and cultural empowerment. SLCC PREP runs Monday – Friday. Fridays are reserved for field trips and special educational events.

Students of PREP will build their problem-solving skills and make new friends as they participate in interesting courses, exciting field trips, and career presentations that build a sense of pride, intellect, community, and “tribe”.

PREP joins other precollege programs at SLCC including Concurrent Enrollment, PREP Plus, PACE Program, TRIO ETS that accelerate learning persistence and encourage college-going predisposition in first-generation families and underrepresented students in college. Our recruiting starts with 6th Grade classrooms and Middle Schools that feed into high schools that report less than 50% of seniors matriculating to college upon graduation.
