I am the school counselor at an early college high school. We have grades 9-13th. We are located in a rural area which restricts most students from experiencing the everyday delights and resources of a big city. Most of our students have never traveled outside of this town. Our graduates are about to go out into the world to explore all life has to offer. I try to expose students to various post secondary career options including colleges and universities they may not be familiar with.
Our students are first generation college students from low income households who could benefit from exposure to diverse colleges and universities outside of the state we live in.
I believe they have not had the opportunity to travel beyond their town. Exposure to higher institutions of colleges and universities within the United States and across the world can and will have an impact on their success and confidence as young adults as they move forward in business, leadership and simply life.
We desire to create a visual plateau to inspire students on a daily basis to focus on and reach the level of college education. Additionally, students will be exposed to colleges from across the nation.
As the students walk the halls of our schools and see different college pennants from universities from around the country.
They will be required to research at least two universities from the displayed pennants. The research papers will be displayed along side the pennants detailing the history of the history, location and general requirements for admission. Being an early college high school, it is our goal and mission for 100% college admission of our students. Your donation will help us achieve this goal! We thank you for your time and support.
