With our high graduation rate, our students’ perspective have changed over the years from ‘if’ I graduate to ‘when’ I graduate from high school, I can… This is a huge positive change of perspective.
Students in 11th and 12th grade will meet monthly throughout the school year with options for college visits to Kennesaw State, University of Georgia, Chattahoochee Tech, Berry College, etc.
Students in high school experience the joy of servant leadership during summer camp as well as through the school year, volunteering in the elementary and middle school programs as tutors and mentors. Acting as lights for the other children, their faith matures as they put it into action.
These students must have participated in the Mission’s elementary and/or middle school programs for at least 3 years and they must have at least a 3.0 GPA.
While there is not a formal tutoring program for our high school students, there is support available to them if/when needed. One of our program coordinators will match a volunteer with the student’s subject needs and arrange a meeting schedule. Additionally, students may come to the Mission to use one of the computers from the mobile lab to access online resources in the subject.
Many of our students do not have computers at home making homework assignments, college research, test preparation and other activities we take for granted quite challenging. So, the Mission makes its computer lab available to our high school students on request to assist in these activities.
