What is Blueprint?
A blueprint is something that acts as a plan, model, or template for something to be built in the future. Here at Blueprint Summer Programs we believe that students should be prepared for the future, not just for college success but for career and life success as well. All of our programs provide foundational academic skills that will lead to a fulfilling college experience and the soft skills that are required for living a healthy, productive, and independent life.
What is the Saturday Series?
Beginning Fall 2020 Blueprint is offering an exciting new Pre-College Saturday Series Program at Loyola University in Chicago and Marymount Manhattan College in New York. Our signature College and Career Success (CCS) curriculum focuses specifically on practical knowledge, academic success skills, and the soft skills needed to be successful in any setting. Students will attend 7 sessions at the school of choice and become immersed in the college atmosphere while learning these success skills from Blueprint’s dedicated education team.
What is Blueprint’s College and Career Success Curriculum (CCS)?
Our CCS curriculum is broken down into 2 sections: Practical knowledge and skill development (or college prep) and soft skill development. We are confident that both of these areas are critical not just for college success but for success in life.
Practical Knowledge & Skill Development
Students will explore post-secondary options such as community colleges, 4 year colleges/universities, trade school programs, certification programs, and apprenticeships; how to pay for college; choosing a major/career; writing resumes and interviewing skills.
Soft Skills Knowledge & Development
Soft skills are those skills employers look for when hiring employees, and those skills that are necessary for living a healthy and independent life, such as: self-management, time management, goal setting, communication, problem solving, critical thinking and utilizing resources.

I would HIGHLY recommend Blueprint to any family looking for a personal, high-value summer college experience.
The staff is completely committed to making your experience the absolute best it can be. I highly recommend this program; it is truly amazing!
The best experience of my daughter’s life. Her words. Thank you!
By the second day we had each other laughing hysterically on our way back from the dining hall! I couldn’t believe how quickly we all became friends.
My daughter thoroughly enjoyed her week at George Washington University! It was a wonderful experience.
Blueprint was the best part of my summer. It gave me a taste of college and helped me discover the type of college I would like to attend. I would not pass up a chance to do this program.
