Our college admissions workshop is back! Join us April 20 at 7:15pm for a free informational session about the best practices when planning your college experience. *Please note the workshop has been rescheduled. 

ARCS has a track record for helping high school students from the Romanian community make their college applications stand out and get accepted to very selective colleges (Harvard, UC Berkeley, Duke University, and more).


The presentation is done by experienced ARCS volunteers, with the support of the Holy Three Hierarchs Church. There are no obligations and no expectations for paid services.

If you are a high school student looking for volunteer opportunities, please emails us at contact@arcsproject.org
