In the High School Program, (9th- first semester of 11th grade) the focus of our college preparation shifts to skill development, college preparatory classes, and the college application process. We call high school β€œThe Audition for College.” We make sure students are taking the right courses, have a strong GPA, improve their standardized test scores and are involved in extracurricular activities. Steps to Success Workshops continue to strengthen academic and personal skills, with special focus on financial literacy, standardized testing, and the value of community service and community-based work. Eleventh grade students spend their Spring Break touring a variety of college campuses in the San Francisco Bay Area cementing the interest and commitment to a higher education.
