(Graduating Ready, Independent & Tenacious)</h5>Designed for first-generation, college college-bound high school seniors, GRIT provides participating students with an enhanced, more connected type of advising. GRIT students will be assigned an advisor to provide direct, virtual support to create a personalized senior college plan as their junior year wraps up. Their advisor will then work with them periodically during the summer and throughout their senior year to make sure they have the support needed to start college after graduating high school. Class of 2022 students can <a href="https://tiny.cc/CDgrit22" target="_blank" style="text-decoration:underline;"><strong style="color:#0072c6;">enroll here</strong></a>. <br><br>Once GRIT begins, advisors will meet with their assigned students one-one-one (virtually) to create an individualized senior plan. Advisors will check in with students regularly to make sure they are on track and be available for students to contact. As the next school year begins, advisors will then assist GRIT students with essential steps throughout their senior year to make sure they stay on track. This includes individualized support for completion of FAFSA and college applications, as well as scholarships, financial aid, admissions, and anything else needed to successfully start college in the fall of 2022. Enrollment is still open for the class of 2022. <br><br></div></div>
