This year, instead of having a college awareness day, we decided to dedicate the entire month of January to College Awareness. We celebrated College Awareness Day on January 11th by bringing 16 college students and recent college grads together
We had students take a career test to gauge their professional interests. There was a college themed pep rally where students learned about the all the extracurricular activities colleges have to offer. We tuned into an episode of @blackishabc which highlighted family views on college and the future.
Each of our 7th graders is going to visit a college this year! We plan to continue the college preparation by planning a parent series, where parents will learn about college and what they need to do to start planning for it. - 1 month ago
