Falling into Autumn with FLITE
Each Fall, our Conestoga High School seniors are busy working on and finalizing their college applications.
Many students in the T/E School District experience financial, academic, and social struggles that make it difficult to maximize their potential. College entrance requirements can be stringent, costly, and confusing without parental experience or guidance. Additionally, opportunities to visit colleges, a crucial part of the process, are often impossible for these students and their families.
As early as freshman year, the FLITE-funded
College Readiness Program supplements activities of the guidance department for eligible students.
The College Readiness Program provides support to build competence and confidence for these students as they approach college and other post-high school opportunities.
The program helps about 75 students each year, incorporating skill-building workshops on essay writing, completing the FAFSA, and interviewing and visiting colleges.
