Success Prep

How different is high school from middle school? How can I be a successful high school student? What does it take to have a rewarding high school experience?

Success Prep is a high school readiness program intended to give entering freshmen the opportunity to have a “fresh start.” Over the course of four consecutive Saturdays, students and parents gain very beneficial information regarding the academic, behavioral and social expectations of a successful high school student.

With post-secondary education as the goal, participants learn the importance of their grade point average, developing solid study habits, seeking the support of guidance counselors, addressing the issues of peer pressure and ultimately preventing adverse actions which impact their path to achievement. This program also features a college campus visit!


Week 1 – High school: what’s the big deal?
Week 2 – How to be successful in high school
Week 3 – The transition from high school to college
Week 4 – College campus tour

During Success Prep, participants will:

  • Create an 8-semester success plan
  • Hear strategies from guidance counselors and educators
  • Discover different diploma types
  • Learn how to read transcripts
  • Visit one of CLD’s esteemed College/University partners campuses
