Civicorps’ high school diploma program prepares students to succeed in college. Our preparation begins with the first day of orientation and extends past graduation. Civicorps helps students enroll in local colleges, particularly the Peralta Community College District, assists with financial aid applications, and helps students identify their career pathways. We have increased the academic standards for graduation and our academic program focuses on college preparatory math and English.
The result is more of our graduates pursuing higher education see themselves as full-time students. Our academic pathway also results in fewer remedial courses for our graduates, better use for their hard-earned AmeriCorps scholarship funds, and, a strengthened ability to prepare for and persevere through college courses.
