ABOUT COLLEGE DISCOVERY
The College Discovery program was developed for 36 African American youth who live in Baltimore City and Forrest Park High School, Guilford, Vanguard, and Walter P. Carter elementary/middle schools.
It is the goal of the College Discovery Academy to provide the 36 African American participants with the knowledge, skills, and positive life values needed to address the array of complex challenges, issues, and pressures they face on a day-to-day basis.
Having the College Discovery Academy at Morgan State University will afford the College Discovery participants exposure to the university’s environment while giving them an opportunity to see, hear, and interact with an expanded pool of positive role models. Eighteen (18) 7th, 8th and 9th-grade females and eighteen (18) 7th, 8th and 9th-grade males will benefit from the wealth of educational, cultural, and career resources, which are available on the campus.
College Discovery was created by the Office of Community Service at Morgan State University with funding from an MSDE grant called the Next Generation Scholars Program. To learn more about the bill and its sponsors click here to read more.
College Discovery will provide the 36 youth with the realization that they can use education to improve themselves to become successful. This reality will be achieved by following the educational progress and involvement of each of the College Discovery participants starting with their first day at Morgan State University.
