Welcome to the Reach High Scholars website!

Starting to think about college is like being on the outside of a big confusing maze. You are aiming for an uncertain goal in the center but there is a sense of being in the dark without a flashlight.

Hopefully, this website will break the process into manageable chunks. It is doing the job well if it opens new ideas for you, puts questions in your mind as well as answers and leads you to reach higher in your educational pursuits than you would have previously imagined possible.

The experience can be fun, exhilarating and empowering. You will be playing out the motto of the Reach High Scholars Program: controlling your destiny.
