The Beginning of our College Success program actually starts in middle school. This stage in life is a crucial time for scholars to learn about themselves so that they can make good decisions for a successful life.  Beginning this fall, the Middle School Success Program will meet once a week after school or a total of eight (8) sessions per semester.

"Leadership and learning are indispensable to each other." - John Fitzgerald Kennedy

This stage in life is crucial time for students. Our goal is to expose scholars to activities that will help them discover their natural talents and gifts as well as to discover their strength and weaknesses. Scholars in this program will learn about careers related to each of these activities. This program will help the scholars in their overall readiness for high school and help them to identify the classes that are needed to prepare for college.   The Middle School Success scholars will receive academic support, as well as character and leadership development skills that are essential to a sustainable future.

Scholars receive tutoring from Alabama A&M students.

We will be visited by various professionals who will discuss their professions and what classes they needed to be prepared. The program will provide students opportunities that will build their expectations and encourage their excitement about their future. A workshop titled Discovering My Path in Life will be administered collaboratively with the Alabama Cooperative Extension System 4H Club. We are looking forward to working with our Middle School scholars!
