The College Prep Institute (CPI) is a college readiness resource center located within the Center for Leadership Development dedicated to assist Indianapolis Youth Development for students in grades 4 through 12, parents and community organizations serving youth by providing free resources and services. We are here at every point in an individuals’ educational journey – including evenings and weekends – with caring, highly qualified guidance counselors, tutors and other professionals.
The College Prep Institute is also open to the public; however requests for tutoring must follow the process below prior to beginning services.
Parent or legal guardian calls or visits CPI lab and indicates tutoring interest for their student. The College Prep Institute Administrator will then schedule a time for the student to take the required NWEA Assessment.
Once the student completes the NWEA Assessment, the parent or legal guardian and their student will schedule a meeting with one of the Center for Leadership Development’s Licensed Guidance Counselors through the College Prep Institute Administrator.
After the Guidance Counseling appointment, and if tutoring is an appropriate next step for the student, the parent or legal guardian will schedule 6 weeks of tutoring with the College Prep Institute Administrator prior to leaving.
Once the student has completed 6 weeks of tutoring, the parent or legal guardian will schedule a final meeting with a Center for Leadership Development Guidance Counselor where they will complete a Tutor Participant Post Survey. The parent or legal guardian and Guidance Counselor will determine if the student needs an additional 6-weeks of tutoring, and if so – the parent or legal guardian will schedule the next sessions with the College Prep Institute Administrator; then repeat step 4 once complete.
