DWC College and Career Paths students Set the foundation for success



“Frona and her team are a godsend. I would have been completely lost without them. I am a technologist. What do I know about liberal arts colleges?”

Philip von Guggenberg, Ph.D., Director of Business Development, SRI International and father of two DWC high school and college path student clients

“Looking at many of my friends who have no idea where to apply and when, I realize just how well prepared I am, and I am very grateful.”
