Metro College Success Program


A Learning Community for the First Two Years of College 

The Metro College Success Program (Metro) was developed to support the next generation of leaders. Each Metro Academy is a 'school within a school' to give you an educational home in your first two years of college and beyond. Metro gives you personalized support for college success through in-class academic support and tutoring. At the core of Metro is a learning community made up of linked courses each semester, pairing a general education course and a Metro course. In Metro, you will build a solid foundation for college success and meaningful work in a variety of careers.
