Academic Year Program

During the academic year, students will have group meetings in their communities to strengthen their ability to perform well in high school and gain admittance to the college or university of their choice.

In addition to academic guidance, career and college counseling, and tutoring, students participate in visits to local work sites with mentors, trips to various educational sites and postsecondary institutions and cultural activities.

Workshops are also offered on a variety of topics such as:

  • Study Skills
  • Maintaining a positive attitude
  • Time management and scheduling
  • Staying on track for college
  • Financing your education
  • Community service

Seniors also receive personalized assistance with applying to the colleges of their choice, financial aid applications, and the utilization of SAT and college application fee waivers.

Parental involvement is also encouraged by annual Financial Aid and College Admissions seminars and college campus visits for students and parents, as well as other workshops for parents to help keep their children on track for college.
