Technology for College Success!

My students need access to the technology that will help them succeed in their post-secondary programs. These laptops will give them that advantage.

My Students

The students that attend APHS seem like your typical small town, middle class students but our demographics are changing dramatically. We have a large range of students that come from various socioeconomic backgrounds and academic abilities.

I want all of my students to have a vision for their future.

I have been trying to use my recent training through the state to create a college-going culture in our high school and focus on students creating a plan for their life after high school. Too many or our students sell themselves short of what they are capable of and I hope to change that with my Decision Day event. This event will be held in front of the entire student body so there will be an opportunity for all students to see their future.

My Project

Having access to technology in our fast-paced society often makes things easier. College is no exception to that. More collaboration is happening with students' increased access to technology. I am hopeful to give two deserving seniors this resource to take with them into their next chapter.

Having access to this portable technology will give students the advantage in college that they need to succeed.

It is hard to imagine that any college student could survive without access to this portable technology. By providing these laptops, two students who would not otherwise be able to afford this resource will have it!
