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.

Moniker Scholarship

The Moniker Foundation’s Scholarship Program seeks to move beyond postsecondary financial support by partnering with specific pre-collegiate programs that provide a spectrum of wrap-around support services to assist students in their collegiate aspirations. Partnering with these programs allows us to foster success in college by leveraging the relationships that students develop in high school with trusted mentors, administrators, and program staff.

Recent Events

Fall is a busy season for seniors. Peak Education recently hosted an evening program at Harrison High School to assist students in brainstorming and polishing their college essays. College representatives from St. Louis University, UCCS, Western Colorado University, and the University of Oregon presented students with important tips and strategies from the perspective of the admissions office, and volunteers were on hand to assist students with one-on-one feedback on their current essay drafts. 

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