Beacon of Hope began hosting the 8th Grade College Readiness Symposium in efforts to help middle school students better understand the importance of their education.
Goals of Beacon of Hope’s 8th Grade College Symposium:
- To help students become excited about post-secondary education – any classes completed after high school
- To enable students the opportunity of visiting a college campus and feel what it’s like to walk around, dine, learn, and enjoy
- To equip students with knowledge that will help them make good choices to and through graduation
