For Families and Students

The College Prep Experience is a four-week program designed to provide high school students who are blind and visually impaired with an integrated college experience in preparation for entry into college or university. This two week program consists of an orientation to familiarize our students with the campus and get them adjusted to college life. The students will participate in intensive Orientation and Mobility Instruction, team-building activities, community service preparation, and academic support preparation. At the culmination or orientation students will participate in one of two offerings within the Bonner Pre-College Program.

At the completion of the program a report will be issued to the family, school district, and NJCBVI. The report designed to reflect a comprehensive evaluation of the skills necessary for a successful college or university life. This report provides recommendations for technology use, orientation and mobility as well as impressions in the following areas:

• Daily Living Activities
• College and Career Readiness
