College Preparation

Once our students have begun to create a vision for their futures, our College & Career Readiness program transitions to focus on preparing for post-secondary success. Along with continuing to build important skills such as good organization and time management, we also provide grade-specific programming to best serve our high schoolers as they prepare for post-secondary life.
