JC Jumpstart Grad Program
This program is specifically designed for Pathways’ graduating seniors that have an Individual Career and Academic Plan (ICAP) that includes community college.
When do students join?
Seniors will be invited to join the program in early fall after completing a survey sent by the Guidance Department. Grads may join anytime throughout the school year (September - May).
The purpose of the PCS JC Jumpstart GRAD program is to prepare seniors for the Community College transition prior to graduation.
Students that participate in the program will receive an introduction to and assistance with completing the steps required for the college matriculation process, including reminders of important dates and deadlines. Research shows that students who complete early college preparation are more successful in achieving their academic goals. In addition, completing the program steps will provide students with priority registration for their first official semester at the JC.
Steps include, but are not limited too:
- Completing a financial aid application (FAFSA or CADAA)
- Completing a college application
- Completing a JC Orientation
- Meeting with a JC Counselor
