Building our cohorts in 9th grade allows PWFC to reach deep into the academic middle, providing college preparation opportunities to students who are otherwise left behind by programs that begin later in high school. Four years of high school programming enables scholars sufficient time to establish crucial academic habits necessary for college and career success. Programming for freshman enriches the school’s curriculum so students have the reading, math and critical thinking skills to bring scholar’s academic skills and habits to college-going levels. Without this early intervention, students may not reach the academic potential that provides the best college options.
