Bridge to Success

June 18 to July 22, 2023

The Bridge to Success (BTS) is an immersive summer program designed to jumpstart your transition from high school to college. Students in BTS program will take one full academic course, which meets one of the General Education graduation requirements. These small, student-centered liberal arts courses are supplemented by study periods, community field trips, and skills-based workshops that prepare students to take advantage of the academic, social, and cultural opportunities available at the University of Richmond.

Spiders in the BTS program live for five weeks in one of the University’s residence halls. Students become acquainted with the campus, forge lasting bonds with a mentor, peers and University staff, and begin to develop crucial time management skills.

Admission to the program comes with full funding, which includes tuition, room and board, class textbooks, and all community-based programming.
