Peer Group Connect

 

Upcoming Event: Family Night, March 14, 2019

Peer Group Connection (PGC) is an evidence-based program that supports and eases students’ successful transition from middle to high school. The program taps into the power of high school juniors and seniors to create a nurturing environment for incoming freshmen. Once per week, pairs of junior and senior peer leaders meet with groups of 6-8 freshmen in outreach sessions designed to strengthen relationships among students across grades. These peer leaders are simultaneously enrolled in a daily, for-credit, year-long leadership course taught by school faculty during regular school hours. 

Services found that, among other major results, PGC improves the graduation rates of student participants in an inner city public school by ten percentage points and cuts by half the number of male students who would otherwise drop out.

OneGoal. College Graduation. Period.

   

  

TPS has a slew of programs starting up this school year. We are proud to announce OneGoal as one of these programs. Under the advisory of Ms. Fundi (Cohort 1) and Ms. Fuller (Cohort 2), with the support of OneGoal staff, our 11th & 12th grade students will be getting a college ready experience unlike no other program available. Students begin their college exploration in the classroom and receive the support and advisory they need to:

  • develop the skills that will help increase their GPA and college entrance exam scores, which in turn increases acceptance rates into more selective post-secondary schools.
  • plan and sign up for important exams such as the PSAT and SAT
  • complete the FAFSA form
  • identify seven best-fit colleges.
  • develop the non-cognitive skills and mindsets needed to graduate from college
  • understand and put into practice OneGoal’s Leadership Principles: Ambition, Resourcefulness, Resilience, Professionalism, and Integrity
  • apply to at least seven best-fit colleges
  • enroll in a best-fit college
  • accomplish academic, financial, and social Steps to Success
  • enroll in the first day of sophomore year with the mastery of the skills, mindsets, and experience that will lead to college graduation

This is a three year program that will follow them through the start of their second year of college. For more information about OneGoal, please visit their website by clicking here.
