Many of our kids are not getting into college, staying in high school or being prepared for college life and the inevitable financial commitments. They come from low income homes, single parent households often with dual jobs and English as a second language.
Our five-year College Prep Program is being developed to further support the preparation, skill development and confodence building needed for our teens to be successful in college. An important component is working with the students and their families to fully understand the financial responsibilities and developing a plan that includes, scholarships, work study and loans. We have expanded our current work with 11th and 12th graders, adding qualified personnel who will work one-on-one and in group sessions offering tutoring and guidance for our 9th and 10th graders. Individual evaluations are done. There will be an emphasis on STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) subject tutoring. This will be a comprehensive 5 year college prep and guidance program for students and their parents. The fifth year will be continued support from the Center through freshman year of college.
The overall goal is that participants get accepted to college, with several options and have an understanding of a concrete plan for financing their education. Our teens need extra attention to be prepared for the college experience and be armed with the tools to stay in college. We want to empower our students to meet their potential and increase their chances of graduating and earning a degree in 4 years.
Ultimately, we want to create more opportunities for our students. We want them to enter the workforce at a higher level than their parents. We hope to inspire them to reach their full potential and to help them become productive citizens.
