CCHS provided after school activities at 10 CCHS housing sites averaging 12 to 15 participants at each location. 10 students and 3 staff from Saint Martin University visited our students at Sunnyside Cristo Rey apartments and Wapato Blessed Kateri apartments and answered questions about going to college and talked about what to expect at college, exposing our students to college life.
College Access presentations and College Access financial aid presentations were provided and scheduled at two sites. One College Access and One College Access-Financial Aid Workshop took place at Wapato Blessed Kateri Village. Two additional: College Access and College Access Financial Aid presentations were planned and scheduled at Sunnyside Cristo Rey apartments. High school graduation and college readiness support was provided to over 60 students and their respective families across CCHS sites mentioned in this proposal. Over 15 families received support in signing up for college bound scholarship program. College Bound and College Access outreach information and education was provided to all of our families across our CCHS portfolio.
