Excel Academy’s Postsecondary Support program is committed to serving students and families for six years post-high school graduation. Regardless of a student’s postsecondary pathway, we are here to be supportive in any way. Some examples of the ways in which we support students and families are by assisting with financial aid forms, understanding a college bill, helping with academics, finding internships, providing career guidance and social/emotional support. We visit our local college students twice per year and virtually “visit” students further away. For students who choose a career pathway, we provide career coaching to ensure students reach their career goals.
“I don’t know how lost I would be without the help of the postsecondary team. My identity as a first generation Latino college student was not an obstacle with the help of the postsecondary team. They have helped me through high school and the college process. Their constant check-in with alumni has helped me find comfort in knowing there is always someone from Excel ready to help me even when I’m in college!”
