The goal of Project Ready High School is to assist 9th and 10th grade students in acclimating through high school. Our programs equip students with age-appropriate life skills designed to promote academic achievement, social development, and workforce and college readiness.  Within each learning area, Project Ready High School provides lessons, activities, assessments and specific learning objectives to guide the sessions.  Program participants gain a greater understanding of the skills and strategies needed to succeed in high school and excel in their journey to post-secondary planning.
