Dear Benicia Families,
We are so fortunate to offer the Benicia Chapter of the Willie B. Adkins Scholar Program next year. The program is a college preparatory program that provides students with the right tools and a good understanding of what’s expected of them beyond high school. Through our strategically planned year-long curriculum, activities, and events, we will strive to meet these objectives.
This program is open to any student in grades 8-12 during the 2023-24 school year. Its primary goals are:
- Increasing the number of African-American students who will enroll in college after high school
- Designing instructional strategies which work with at-risk students
- Assisting students in goal setting and potential career choices
- Exposing students to successful role models and college experiences
- Assisting students in understanding the value of establishing superior work ethics and the value generated from their efforts
- Helping students understand racial pride, their culture, and the role they play in society
