Description

The 2015-2016 academic year resulted in the addition of programming for Cohort 1 Valley Scholars. Study skills and time Management, biology Lab, and SAT prep were three new programs added for year two. These programs were designed to support the high school academic transition. Cohort 2 year one programs built upon previously implemented activities, but also included new programs. New programs included a Geology lab aligned to the Earth Science curriculum, a shark tank style pitch activity designed to improve design, debate and presentation skills, and a self-identity and career exploration day. Valley Scholars worked with Blue Ridge Community College to design and implement an introductory program to study pathways available at the community college.
