SENIOR BRIDGE 2019 Featured Photo


How do I get into the college of my dreams? How does financial aid work? What major should I choose? Class of 2020 students participated in the first-ever Senior Bridge, a three-day college application boot camp, this week. Los Angeles Education Partnership’s College Adviser Team provided workshops, information and activities. Seniors worked on teams to create their Financial Aid Tower of Power from items labeled “loans,” “grants,” “work-study,” “scholarships” and “expected family contribution.” All students who participated were able to check out their laptops and earn their senior t-shirt! See Ms. Natividad, Class of 2020 counselor, or Emma Nolan-Abrahamiam, Community Schools Coordinator, for help with the college application process.
