We’ll take you from A – Z
In the college admissions process.
Explore Solutions is an affordable, high-value preparatory program that blends career awareness and college exploration to help 11th and 12th grade high school students and their families. The Scholar Program helps students understand how their academic strengths, personal preferences, and financial resources can come together to determine a post-high school path that makes sense for them.
Students in the Scholar Program explore potential career pathways that suit their interests and aptitudes, connect with local industry leaders at our community events, and attend regular group sessions. A financial package review is offered to all Scholar students and their families. A one-time $400.00 enrollment fee per student, per academic year, is required.
Families with significant need may apply for an enrollment fee waiver. Please contact us directly for more information.
Junior and Senior enrollment for the academic year 2019-2020 is now open. If you would like to attend an information session about our Scholar program, please see our Events page for days and times.
