Charting For Success

About The Program

Charting for Success provides a streamlined, comprehensive approach to college and career readiness for students in middle and high schools. The initiative creates and models a college-going culture for middle and high school student participants. Each lesson will guide students through the steps necessary to move toward a post-high-school plan of action. In addition, both students and parents are engaged in planning for student’s post-secondary education and/or training. Through lessons, activities and events, students will address the key steps for future academic and career success.  The activities include: academic preparation, SAT/ACT workshops, paid internships, college/career exploration, in state and out of state college tours, college financing and financial literacy.
