a Post-Graduate (PG) year
for students who are college-bound
but not yet college-ready
why consider the academy at watkinson
Given the challenges created by COVID-19, recent high school graduates may feel uncertain about starting college in the fall for a whole host of reasons:
- anxiety about traveling away from home
- stress about communal college living
- worry that the experience won’t be what they hoped for.
The Academy at Watkinson is a post-graduate year for day students who may take up to two classes per semester at the University of Hartford while strengthening their high school transcript with classes at Watkinson. Students start to earn college credit while still experiencing the benefits of a small community. Academy students also reap the full benefits of Watkinson’s nationally-recognized college counseling office.
