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

The high schools we target in the Lincoln community are Lincoln High, North Star, and Northeast. We look for participants who present a strong desire in successfully graduating high school and are highly motivated to pursue a college degree. Our goal is to increase the rate at which participants complete secondary education and enroll in and graduate from institutions of postsecondary education.
