Providing Access to College and Pathways to Success for Local Youth

Wentworth, through CLP, is committed to increasing access to a college education for local youth, with the goals of: A) Growing a new cohort of youth interested in design, engineering, computer science, and management; B) Helping student persist at Wentworth; and C) Supporting them through graduation from Wentworth. To help them achieve these important goals, we offer several programs as part of our influential Boston Pipeline Initiative that local youth can participate in:

Dual Credit

Dual Credit, Wentworth's Dual Enrollment model, allows juniors and seniors from partners Boston high schools to earn college credit while simultaneously earning credit toward a high school diploma. This program is aimed at students who have an interest in Wentworth and/or the STEM fields.

BEACON Pathways

BEACON Pathways is a collaboration between Boston Public Schools (BPS) and Wentworth that aims to increase the attendance, retention, and graduation rates of urban youth from Boston who are pursuing degrees that reflect the local economy with pathways in Engineering, Technology, and Management.

College Access + Success Partnerships
