Promise Scholars aims to fulfill three main objectives in order to increase the skills the students need in the future for themselves, their families, and their communities. We plan on increasing parent and student awareness and aspirations early for college and technical training. Also, we want to increase student knowledge about college and technical training opportunities and their plans to participate in post secondary education. Finally, we overall want to provide increases access to college for the Promise Scholars of the OMSD.
This will be done by two different components of the program broken down by grade level. First, the fifth and eight graders will receive field trips to community colleges and four year universities to become exposed to higher education. The second component consists of sixth graders receiving business leader presentations in class, where community members come speak about their path to college and their career. Also, the twelfth graders receive the chance to attend a Cash for College workshop to receive assistance with their financial aid.
Mission: The vision of the Promise Scholars Initiative is to prepare all Ontario-Montclair School District (OMSD) students to be successful in a global society by increasing their high school completion rates and college going rates.
