The Student Advancement Department Summer Transition Centers (STC) will open on June 4, 2018. The centers are for recent high school graduates who may need assistance with finalizing paperwork, have questions about what to do after high school, need help applying for or completing the college paperwork, or just need some guidance on available options.
STC’s are located throughout the school district. You can choose to go to any of the available sites to get help. The STC locations will be staffed with at least one Post-secondary Transition Specialist, College Advisor, and Financial Aid Advisor.
WHAT IS SUMMER MELT?
Across the country, 10–40% of seemingly college-intending students, particularly those from low-income backgrounds, fail to enroll in college the fall after graduation. This phenomenon is known as summer melt. College-intending students have completed key college-going steps, such as being accepted to college and applying for financial aid, and have concretely signaled their intention to enroll in college. A student has melted if he or she was college-intending, and yet still fails to transition successfully to college the fall after high school graduation. – Harvard University
