Preparing Middle School Students for High School & College
Organized by: Maggie Paynich
Ready for the printer!
September 06, 2016
College & Career access starts in middle school. My goal is to intrinsically motivate middle school students to take full advantage of high school from the first day of 9th grade. Do you know a 9th grader who can self advocate to their school counselor about which classes they will need to take throughout high school, or what their goal GPA is? You will.
Colleges want to know what you are passionate about and how you have demonstrated that passion throughout various volunteer, work, and school experiences. The secret to writing a college essay is not hiring the right consultant, it's about living life experiences that help develop passion that can be described in a college essay.
I've been told by students and educators that this program is more tactical, focused and comprehensive than traditional college informational classes. Help me bring this program to as many children as possible!
I've been offered the awesome opportunity to pilot this program at the two Ivy Prep charter school locations (Gwinnett & Kirkwood) and an afterschool program called A+ Squash starting this fall. Please help me raise the funds to start this project in the next few weeks.
The funds will go towards the development, publishing, & printing of the Education Inspires: I'm Going to College! Workbook so students can start this program this September. I'll need to pay the printer mid September, so please help me TODAY to raise the funds for this project.
I've been developing this project since I was a Master's student my School Counseling program, 5 years ago. It is finally coming to fruition and this is my life passion - to teach students to be their own advocate, help develop their passions sooner than later and provide the information and skills to make the most of their high school experience.
The right mindset, grades, experience and motivation will help our students get into the best colleges at lowest cost or get a head start on their way to entrepreneurship and build the best career and life possible.
Thank you for your trust in me! Maggie Paynich
