Senior Program

[/vc_column_text][divider line_type=”No Line” custom_height=”20″][vc_column_text]The core focus of the Senior program is to prepare mentees for the college application process, which includes considerations for government and institutional financial aid, as well as third party scholarships. The Senior Program begins with a refresher Test Prep curriculum for mentees taking SAT or ACT exams in the fall of their senior year. A targeted Writing and Critical Thinking curriculum focuses on improving college essays. The mentoring sessions center¬†on the college selection process, preparing applications, financial aid and scholarships, and general college preparation skills. In the spring, seniors complete a Capstone Project, which is a service learning project that teaches students the importance of giving back to their communities.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
