My Students

Our Seniors have worked hard over the past four years of high school to reach their academic and career goals.

They've challenged themselves with personal, social and career exploration.

Taking challenging classes, participating in our renowned Clubs (we have over 100 for students to choose from!), taking a chance by trying out for a play or musical or sport, and multiple other examples of community involvement...our students are simply the best and we want to send them out in style!

My Project

On May 1st, 500 seniors from our high school will participate in a Celebration Day which will culminate their hard work over four years in high school.

Half celebration (with a Fun Zone full of games, food, thank you card writing, photo booth, college mascots and raffle prizes) and half sharing their post-high school plan with an adult staff member, our students will get the opportunity to celebrate and savor the end of their high school careers.

By participating in this event, our students will join other high school graduates in the #ReachHigher initiative started by former first-lady Michelle Obama.

Help us help our students who have worked so hard for this moment!
