CSI Heads for the Summit!
As a feature of our new partnership with College Summit, an organization that partners with schools to help strengthen the college going culture so that all students graduate career and college ready, this week twenty five rising seniors headed to Yale University where they participated in a four day residential workshop. At the workshop, while experiencing a college envioronment, our students continued their college searches and got a head start on the application process as they worked with Writing Coaches on their personal statements. These students were also trained as peer leaders. As peer leaders, along with their senior adviosrs who will also participate in professional development this summer, these students will lead the way and inspire their peers to persevere through the college process. As they work with their peers as well as with freshmen, sophomores, and juniors, they will be instrumental in helping to reinforce the college going culture we have worked hard to create.
We are very excited about our new partnership with College Summit. To find out more about how to support this program so that we can bring it to our 9th-11th graders as well, please contact our school.
