The TOPS College Success program exists in partnership with the Boys and Girls Club of Dane County. We support former participants in the AVID/TOPS program from any of the four Madison high schools (East, LaFollette, Memorial, West). This comprehensive support program is designed to increase student retention and graduation rates and to facilitate student transfer from Madison College to a four-year college or university.

Supports and services include:

  • Student Success Coaching with study skill development to help students achieve academically
  • Individualized academic, career, and personal advising to help students develop professional skills, build confidence, and promote academic and personal success
  • Goal setting and development of a Personal Education Plan (PEP)
  • Student success workshops (financial literacy, academic, career, personal)
  • Career guidance, campus tours, transfer assistance
  • Community service and networking opportunities
  • Peer support and mentoring
