One College Prep at Cottonwood

Updated: Aug 7, 2020

One College Prep is a class that prepares students from refugee background for college and leads to the comprehensive One Refugee scholarship program. In the class students develop life-long habits for success, improve academic English skills, and explore career interests and aptitudes.

Changes for the 2020-21 school year include:

  • Dividing the class into two levels; previously we had two sections of the same class. This will allow us to better meet the needs of OCP students.

  • For students who will be seniors in the 2020-21 school year and are college ready, they will not need to be enrolled in the class but will meet with Jennifer Perry on some late start Mondays before school. These students have been identified and are aware of and in agreement with the plan. Several students who would fit in this category have opted to enroll in the Level 2 class next year, which we support.

Eligibility for One College Prep:

  • Level 1

  • Be a sophomore or junior during the 2020-21 school year and have a minimum WIDA 3 score (sophomores) or WIDA 4 score (juniors);

  • Any exception to this needs to be in consultation with OCP staff;

  • Be highly motivated to be college ready and plan to attend college upon completion of high school.

  • Level 2

  • Be a junior or senior during the 2020-21 school year;

  • Previously completed OCP Level 1; OR

  • Highly motivated with a high placement score and guidance counselor and OCP staff agree Level 2 placement is appropriate

Enrolling in One College Prep:

  • Recommendation from teacher(s) and/or counselor;

  • Complete an application (attached);

  • Complete a placement assessment (Ms. Perry will work with you to arrange the testing, and takes approximately 20 minutes).
