The ASCEND Program was developed to motivate, engage, and assist high school students in reaching their maximum potential. The program serves young men and women in grades 9 through 12. The program focused on achievement, self-awareness, communication, engagement, networking, and development skills. One core component of the program is an introduction to SMART careers (science, math, and related technologies). By the end of a student’s participation, students will be better positioned to transition to college life or the workplace. This program will be transitioned to encompass our new target: #CAP. This new Signature Program is #CAP which is the abbreviation for College Admissions Process. It is designed to assist students in their efforts to enter college by providing a hands-on approach that includes all the steps from researching various colleges to actually completing the application process.
