Clatsop Community College’s Freshman Success Academy ran Monday, August 23rd through Friday, August 27th with fifteen local students.
The weeklong academy sought to motivate and support students entering their freshman year of high school through academic classes, team building activities and field trips to area high schools.
“The goal of our program is to promote high school success and help students go to college when they graduate. These students are learning new study and organizational skills that will ensure they reach their academic potential,” says Tonya Schoonmaker, a Guidance Coordinator for the Educational Talent Search Program at the College.
One participant, Kayla Worwood, will be a freshman at Astoria High School in the fall. She says, “I am attending this academy to refresh my memory so I am prepared for high school and can have a great start for the beginning of the year.”
The program culminated in a field trip to Ft. Stevens that included geocaching and community service.
