Achieve Your College Dreams Today
Kalos Academy reveals the hidden curriculum of college success to students who are first-generation, low-income, or members of traditionally underrepresented groups. We aim to address the challenges associated with 'undermatched' students: those who might be enrolled at a school that's not optimally challenging, given their abilities and potential. We help students first to stay engaged and thrive where they are; but also to envision a future in which they graduate at the top of their class and/or enter an excellent graduate school.
How do we do this?
College students and recent graduates around the country have volunteered to work with you at no cost to achieve your college dreams!
Using a team mentoring approach, we will help you keep your academic skills sharp and give you advice about succeeding in college or transferring to the school of your dreams.
We work with you personally to understand your goals and empower you to achieve them.
For Peer Mentors
Come join a movement for equitable access to education and equal opportunity for achievement!
Your experience could be indispensable to the success of an entering college student. Imagine if you could have known ahead how to make a schedule and register for classes, to get the help you needed, or to find internships.
Volunteer to share your knowledge and strengthen your college skills in the process.
College faculty from around the country help us to develop our unique method for teaching the "hidden" curriculum of college success -- from disciplinary assumptions in the classroom, to analytical expectations on written assignments, to the tricks of the trade in STEM fields.
Using our curriculum, we train advanced college students to mentor, and work with entering college students to succeed!
