    College Horizons is very proud to announce our host universities for summer 2017!  We are pleased to announce that in 2017, College Horizons students will have the opportunity to attend one of two programs at either Princeton University in Princeton, NJ or Whitman College in Walla Walla, WA. These two programs compliment each other very nicely by offering us a west coast and east coast option. The application for these programs will be released by October 15, 2016.  Sign up early to receive an application as soon as it becomes available on our Apply Page.

    The 2017 dates for each program are as follows: June 17-23 for Princeton University and July 8-14 for the Whitman College program. Each program will be 6 days long and bring up to 100 Native students to campus for our annual crash course on the college application process. 

    For tips on applying to College Horizons in 2017, join us as we host an informational webinar on October 12, 2016 from 1pm to 1:30pm MST. A Q&A session will follow the webinar for those able to stay.  This webinar is intended to provide information for prospective applicants to the program, parents and educators. For a full description and for info regarding upcoming webinars, please see our Webinar page. 

  • Webinar Time!

    Last week we had a chance to hold an informational webinar for prospective students, parents and educators who are looking to apply to our programs next summer.  We're still relatively new to this way of broadcasting information about our programs, but we think it went well.  We had about 85 people register to attend the webinar - woohoo!  If you wanted to attend the webinar but didn't have a chance to, here is a recording that we've posted to youtube.  It contains everything that a regular presentation contains and then some!  Carmen Lopez, our Executive Director describes our programs, gives advice on students applying to our programs and answers many questions from participants.  If you are seeking information about next year's programs, this is definitely the video to watch!
