Last month, almost 30 colleges and universities set up ambassadors in the gym at Fannie Lou Hamer in order to meet with and inspire our students. In 9th and 10th grade Advisories, students have been preparing for college by participating in activities and discussions about college life and realities using the NYU CARA curriculum. In the 11th and 12th grades, students continue to work with our full-time College Success Center, composing Personal Statements, investigating colleges, and applying for colleges.
At the annual College Fair, students toured the converted gym in order to meet Admissions Counselors face-to-face. Students interviewed colleges about their programs, discovered new opportunities, and exchanged information in order to being their college search as early as possible.
At Fannie Lou Hamer Freedom High School, we believe that college is attainable for all of our students, and we work hard from the first day of 9th grade through the day of graduation to challenge and support our scholars to have the opportunities they deserve.
