What's Happening Now

Peak Education is on the move with new initiatives to keep talent from being wasted. We envision a new Peak Education model that builds on the success of our current cohort model in order to increase access to college counseling - ensuring more students are applying to well matched schools and equipped with knowledge about how to navigate the admission and financial aid application processes as well as how to successfully transition to and through college. Our strategic priorities have three primary components:

  • Maintain signature cohort program in Harrison High School.

  • Create new cohort models in other schools and school districts.

  • In partnership with school counselors, embed Peak Education staff into schools to engage directly in college counseling activities and help support the postsecondary achievement goals of partner school districts.

  • Ensure students are gaining financial access as well as admission offers through scholarships / need-based financial aid possibilities.

  • Expand our mentoring program that begins in 11th grade and continues through the completion of college.

  • Expand relationships with Peak Education mentors and staff during key points of the college experience.

  • Develop internship pipelines & connections between Peak Education scholars and city leaders in the community and industry.

Recent Events

Spring semester is here and all hands are on deck! Scholars are applying to colleges, others are getting accepted, and even more are applying for scholarships. Contact Carlos with questions about scholarships and all other college counseling questions.

 

We have been meeting with all of our students once a month to teach them something different every time. Last month we talked about social skills and first impressions to the middle schoolers. In the high schools we talked about realities of college life and relating career research and conversations to the college search process. 

Peak Ed scholars are also welcome to come into the office any time to get help completing their applications.
