Our school is in a rural area of Southern California. Most of our students come from low-income families, without the resources to help their students navigate the challenges of developing a college and career pathway. Our students work hard to be successful in the classroom to enhance their ability to go to a 2 year or 4 year college. Our students take challenging coursework to meet college requirements, sometimes with little support.
Most of our students do not have parents who have attended college; making them first generation college students.
Many of our students want to continue their education to give themselves more opportunities to improve their lives. They have worked hard outside of the classroom, many of them participating in sports, clubs, theater or band, or even working to help support their families.
Our students have to overcome so many challenges to be successful in school to have a better future.
We are celebrating our seniors who have made a decision to attend a 2 year or 4 year college or university, attend a vocational or trade school, or have enlisted in the military. We want our seniors to know how proud we are of their determination and desire to continue their education and improve their lives after high school. Most of our students are from low income households that do not have a lot of resources to support their students in making the transition to post-high school education. Your participation in our event by providing the funds will help us give these students, most who are first generation college-students, a great start in college. Please help us make this event a marvelous celebration.
