Sending your child off to college is filled with many different emotions and fears. Especially when you have a child with a learning disability. How will they adjust and will they have a smooth transition?

The Step Ahead program organized by the Student Academic Support Services office is a unique summer bridge program for first year students that fine tunes the necessary academic, independent and social skills for a smooth transition into college. Step Ahead runs from August 16th through August 21, days before all other McDaniel students arrive on campus. As a result, Step Ahead participants can move into their assigned residential rooms and establish some important connections within the college community early.

The five-day program features team-building activities, academic workshops, field trips and all kinds of tips about college life, from the whimsical to the serious. Step Ahead participants will also have time to meet with their academic counselors and start the initial steps of a sound college routine that incorporates college resources, supportive faculty and staff, as well as some of their peers.

Parents/students can fill out this Step Ahead form to receive more information regarding Step Ahead.

Step Ahead participants will be charged: $250.
Space is limited so click here to download and fill out the registration form. Completed forms should be mailed to the SASS office.
