College Discovery Open House
Timeless Teachings in a Changing World
Created by the Office of Community Service, the College Discovery Academy was developed because too many African American young people in secondary schools are ill-prepared for life’s challenges and are over-represented in the criminal justice system.
However, the effects of this overrepresentation among the juvenile population in the criminal justice system are not limited to the damages caused to persons and properties, but society as a whole is deprived of the positive contributions these African American youth in secondary schools could make.
Today more than ever there is an urgent need to develop programs that increase the educational aspirations and achievements of African American young people. We look forward to the future and are excited to guide these 36 young people on their College Discovery journey.
