HOW WE GET THERE
Our high success rates have everything to do with the many programming opportunities we provide along the journey of our scholars discovering, understanding, and choosing colleges from the vast pool of options. We have workshops geared toward informing scholars who may be the first-generation college-bound, through financial aid, and even campus living workshops. Not only that, but we also have application labs and write-a-thons where scholars, staff, and volunteers come together to provide support, attention, and assistance in college essay supplements, personal statements, and filling out applications. Our support and preparation begins in 9th grade and continues to grow through the high school years, so that by the time the scholars are seniors they are comfortable and confident when exploring the world of college exploration.
