Access to College & Careers

The Access to College & Careers program creates an educational experience that provides students and their families with the necessary skills and support to thrive in four-year colleges, two-year colleges, other programs of higher learning, employment, and beyond.  In addition to supporting students academically, we seek to cultivate the social skills and professional demeanor needed to access institutional power and wellbeing.
