College Mentorship Groups
Applying to college is a difficult and stressful process for most students. Most students have little to no guidance throughout this process, which contributes to the stress and difficulties of applying. Many students worry if they are "doing the right thing" and if they will get accepted into a college/university.
Our College Mentorship Groups allow for you to talk to current college students and former OM graduates throughout your college admissions journey. It may be difficult going on this journey by yourself for the first time, with a parent, or even a sibling, because they might not "understand" how you feel.
We are your college journey support system! We have all been through this process and have been in your shoes. . You can talk to your mentor on a daily basis, weekly basis, whatever you choose. Our Mentorship Groups are for you to talk to a mentor about your journey, ask questions, address concerns, and ask for our advice based off our experiences throughout your ENTIRE college application journey and receive constant support from our mentors to encourage and support you every step of the way.
Mock SAT/ACT Test Prep
To prepare our high school students with college standardized testing (SAT/ACT), Oakland Mills United plans to offer FREE mock practice SAT/ACT tests for students to practice taking the test in a testing environment and will review each problem after the exam.
If you are interested in volunteering as a test proctor for these mock practice tests, please let us know. If you are interested in volunteering as a SAT or ACT problem review teacher, please let us know.
*Due to COVID-19, we will not be offering any mock tests at this time. We will provide an update when mock test sessions will be provided.
College Prep Seminars
How do I best prepare for the college admissions process? What do admissions officers look for in an applicant? How do I know what school I should apply for? How I get scholarships or grants to pay for tuition?
Have these questions and much more answered through our College Prep Seminars as we invite guest speakers from college admissions officers to college admissions counselors to current college students to answer these questions for you!
