With AJC’s inaugural group (Class of 2012) graduating high school and the majority heading to college, Graduate Support services were extended into the college years in the Fall of 2016. We offer continued counseling, support and financial assistance for incidentals for AJC graduates in college. This extension of services will help ensure that our graduates not only enroll in, but also graduate from college.
We know that statistically most college drop outs happen within the first two semesters. The challenge of living independently along with the increased course work and level of expectation from teachers, peers, family and friends can chip away at the confidence of any student. If you’d like to be partnered with a college student pen pal to help ease this transition, please contact us! A monthly note of encouragement along with the occasional care package of ramen noodles and Kit Kats could make all the difference!
For more information on how you can help support our graduates, please contact Mary Desch, Graduate Support Director, at desch[email protected].
