Civicorps’ high school diploma program prepares students to succeed in college. Our preparation for college begins with the first day of orientation and extends past graduation. Civicorps’ College Counselor 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 evening academic program focuses on college preparatory math and English.
The result is more graduates seeing themselves as full-time college students as well as 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.
