  • What types of students are enrolled into the program?

    Students of all academic levels are encouraged to join the program. We reach students who need the extra push as well as students who want to maintain a high level of achievement.

    How are goals calculated?

    Goals are customized to each students situation. Goals typically include a GPA goal and may also include life based goals. We strive to make a goal that is both challenging and realistic for any given student.

    Students who meet their GPA goal for the semester are awarded with a $200 check, payable to them. They will also receive tickets for themselves and two guests to the awards banquet at the end of that semester for a night of food and celebration.
