Delivered in the classroom during the regular school day, we focus on high school graduation including A-G course completion, college planning, self-advocacy and empowerment, financial literacy, practical life skills, and career attainment.
Our counseling sessions help students ensure they are completing all requisite coursework, learn about financial assistance such as aid and scholarships, and determine the colleges and universities that best match their educational goals.
As a part of our College Access Program, our trained staff familiarizes students with financial aid terms, the application process, and responsible borrowing through student loans.
To help our students envision themselves in a university environment, our staff of college counselors accompanies students on day trips to college campuses throughout the school year.
Students’ mentors serve as positive role models to provide long-term guidance, empower them to achieve their academic dreams, and help their middle or high school students make important life decisions.
LEAD students participate in grade-specific leadership workshops which address a variety of topics including community service, teamwork, organization skills, social/civic awareness, and empowerment.
