"Access Opportunity is paving the way to success; a compass for determining which direction to take, a field guide to identify those students that need the support to make it to college, and the help to stay in college, regardless of their circumstances."
-RAYNITA, AO PARENT
Beyond working closely with our students in support of their goals, we are also focused on engaging their 172 parents and guardians in the process.
Each year, we have 5 touch points with families: in-home and financial aid meetings, social emotional support, bilingual services and a celebratory gathering.
87% of our students are the first in their family to attend college, which means this entire journey is new for everyone.
