Middle School Students
Middle school students focus on applying to high schools, learning about different careers accessible with a college degree, and thinking about what it means to be a college-bound student.
7th Grade Workshops
Students create a 12 year roadmap, where they research careers, colleges, and high schools to set long-term goals and reflect on how they can start preparing for their future as a middle school student. Students also learn about S.M.A.R.T. goal-setting and use that to set monthly academic goals for themselves throughout the year.
8th Grade Workshops
8th grade students research high schools, reflect on their high school priorities, sign up for high school visits, and create their final high school lists. Students pursuing independent schools participate in First Graduate test prep classes, essay workshops with volunteers, financial aid application meetings, and interview practice sessions.
