College Access

One of the staples of the Miami Kappa League is its' commitment to encouraging college attendance as an ultimate means of improving the educational and economic disparities for people of color.  Some of the ways in which we achieve this are:

Naviance-An online tool that helps monitor student grades, academic progress, and help with the college application process.

 

SAT/ACT Prep Course: We have teamed up with the Princeton Review to provide workshops, practice tests, diagnostics, and counseling to assist with achieving the highest possible scores on the SAT & ACT. 

 

Tutoring: Our Kappa Leaguers are offered tutoring in a number of subjects by members of the Miami Alumni Chapter of Kappa Alpha Psi.

 

Financial Aid Resources: A vital part of attending college is making sure finances will be covered. An integral part of this is helping the student maximize grant and scholarship opportunities and minimize loans.  Because of this, the Miami Kappa League provides financial aid resources with the help of experienced financial aid advisors. 

College Tours

The Miami Kappa League annually takes students on tours of college campuses.  

Some campuses recently visited are: Howard University, University of Central Florida, University of South Florida, Bethune-Cookman Unviersity, University of Florida, Florida A&M University, Florida State University, Savannah State University, and more

College Signing Day

Athletes are not the only students that should be celebrated for making the decision to attend college!  Our annual College Signing Day acknowledges the accomplishments of our senior Kappa Leaguers as they announce what school they decided to attend.
