We Are Excited!
Fall Semester 2019 is here!!!
We had a blast this summer. New classes, activities and field trips were rolled out. Our College & STEM Tour was a HUGE success.
As we prepare for the Fall semester 2019 and beyond, we are expecting FULL PARTICIPATION of all students AND STRONG SUPPORT of our parents.
Please help us make this endeavor a very successful one.
Please be aware that Program Advisors are in their schools now to assist you. In the next few weeks, a mandatory Student and Parent meeting will be scheduled. Email notifications with date, time and location will be sent soon.
We are passionate about what we do in TRiO. We are here to help with your academic, college and career goals. Take advantage of these life-changing opportunities others wished they had.

We had a great time visiting NOMA with some of our seniors last week. We loved the special exhibits, especially A Queen Within: Adorned Archetypes
After touring the museum we walked around the sculpture garden and ate lunch in City Park. It turned out to be a gorgeous day!
Did you know that NOMA admission is FREE for Louisiana residents on Wednesdays and free EVERY DAY for teenagers?! Go check it out and let us know what you think!
WOW look at these amazing hats! We had a blast creating art and fashion with you all last weekend. And a big thank you to Peri Levine (pictured in center) for teaching us about your designs. For anyone who missed it, Peri started her own business selling her hats in high school, and went on to receive a full-ride scholarship to Tulane. Looking forward to more hat making in the near future!
We had a great time celebrating the end of fall semester and 2017 with you all on Saturday. You are all STARS!
