Success Prep Program

Grade Level
8th 9th

Success Prep was life-changing for one of our girls. She was losing focus in school for a variety of reasons in 8th grade and I was concerned about how to redirect her. Success Prep leaders helped her understand that grades in high school would impact her college opportunities and choices, as well as potential scholarships. They gave her guidance on how to be successful throughout her high school years and truly opened her eyes on how to make better choices for her life.
