This popular, high-energy event stresses to eighth grade students the need to take control and make the best use of their high school experience. Our goal is that each student will develop the mindset they will attend college. Students participate individual tracks that take them through a series of group sessions. The sessions are designed to show why high school is important and how to get involved with the many opportunities available in higher education.
