Aspirando Alto

Aspirando Alto group

Aiming higher

Aspirando Alto is a three-day, college preparation conference for 9th - 11th graders. This event is open to all students, but especially seeks to advance the needs and interests of Hispanic youth and communities. Up to 35 high school students move onto Calvin College’s campus for a fun-filled weekend of college exposure and academic engagement activities.

Through this partnership, participants have the opportunity to come to Calvin's campus and:

  • take simulated college courses
  • have first-hand experiences with college faculty and students
  • live in the residence halls
  • eat in the dining halls

Parents join their students for the last day of conference activities and attend workshops especially designed for them.
