College Bound Scholars Program

The College Bound Scholars (CBS) program is mandatory for all students and provides incoming freshmen with an understanding of what an academically rigorous, accelerated college preparatory high school curriculum entails. This process continues through senior year where students who are about to graduate are prepared for college-level work and the transition to college life.

CBS classes are taught by faculty members, each of whom focuses on a different aspect of the program. The CBS classes are divided into two areas of concentration. The first section concentrates on practical skills such as college essay writing, research and college composition, test preparation, financial literacy, vocabulary, time management, résumé development and study skills. The second section explores values and character building -- discovering who a student is, defining success, setting goals, building a sense of citizenship and how they see themselves in the world. Students explore and expand their cultural knowledge and address college preparation, including the connections to the outside world of careers, cultural institutions and global citizenship.
