HEELS FOR SUCCESS
Heels for Success is a one-day summer program to help academically-talented, rising sophomores and juniors prepare for college. Over the course of the day, students will learn techniques for approaching the ACT, explore the Carolina campus and its wide-ranging academic opportunities, as well as learn how to manage the college application process. They’ll also get the chance to connect with other outstanding students from across the country. This program is free to students, although we regret that we cannot provide transportation assistance.
