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.

Individualized Support

Our program staff work from an office in our partner school in order to provide individualized support to scholars during the school day. All PWFC scholars have a scheduled weekly one-on-one meeting with their cohort lead to address individual growth areas, challenges and further develop skills. Students also have access to tutoring during the school day at the PWFC office. Students and their families receive individual counseling on the college selection and financial aid processes. In junior year, PWFC scholars are paired with college persistence mentors. PWFC mentors provide additional support to help scholars navigate their college journey.

Experiential learning in high school takes students out of their community, and out of their comfort zone, to develop the self-confidence and leadership skills necessary to navigate through the first year of college. PWFC scholars participate in an experiential learning trip in each of the four high school years.
