You join a cohort of about 25 OneGoal Fellows and meet as a class every day with your OneGoal Program Director (a teacher at your school). Together, you work to develop the habits and skills to increase your GPA and ACT/SAT scores to get into colleges and universities, and to research and identify schools that are a good fit for you.
You continue to work with the same Program Director and cohort from your junior year. You’ll receive direct support in applying to at least seven colleges and universities and applying for financial aid. Together, you’ll support one another as you learn how to identify, prepare for, and overcome social, academic and financial roadblocks you’ll face in college.
The support in your third year is incredibly important. As you leave high school and start college, your Program Director will continue to support you through email, social media, and more. You’ll focus on specific steps important to persisting in college, like improving study skills, accessing on-campus supports, joining a club/organization, etc.
