Summer 2013


We serve eligible students from eight Lincoln Public middle and high schools with the aim of increasing successful high school graduation and subsequent postsecondary enrollment.

The middle schools we target in the Lincoln community are Culler, Dawes, Lefler, Mickle and Park and the high schools are Lincoln High, North Star and Northeast. An ideal participant must posses a strong desire in continuing secondary education, and be motivated to attend and successfully graduate from a postsecondary institution. We also encourage persons who have not completed education programs at the secondary or postsecondary level to enter or reenter and complete postsecondary education. Ultimately, it is our goal to increase the number of youth from disadvantaged backgrounds who complete high school and enroll in and complete their postsecondary education.
