This program is designed specifically for incoming freshman to practice the academic and social-emotional skills they will need to be successful in any collegiate environment.

College Courses

Students will be enrolled in two, 9-week courses through North Idaho College. The courses count as transferable elective credits, or can also count towards an Associates degree at North Idaho College.

Therapeutic & Life Skills

Summer College Series at NWCS includes a daily therapeutic group, and life coaching sessions. The therapeutic group is led by members of the NW College Support Clinical Team, and will be focused on issues related to the transition of going to college, and living as an independent young adult. Life Coaching sessions focus on teaching and exposing students to the independent living skills they will need in order to be successful in their next collegiate environment.

Students will have the opportunity to enjoy staff-led hikes, wake surfing, and paddle boarding. Community activities will include movies, BBQs, and game nights.
