Our College Initiatives team is excited to offer our 11th-grade students the opportunity to connect with higher education institutions. Over the next three months, YES Prep is offering two programs that will do just that, Junior Spring Trip and IMPACT Saturday.   

Junior Spring Trip 

YES Prep plans trips for our junior class to visit colleges in person each year. Junior Spring Trip has been offered for the past few years in February. However, because of winter weather on recent trips, the trips will be the weeks of March 20 and March 27, 2023.  
Visiting college campuses allows students to grow in four areas: college lists, college knowledge, exposure to colleges and college aspiration. 

Our junior class will have the opportunity to travel on local, regional and national tours. If you have given your child permission to travel on Junior Spring Trip, please be on the lookout for upcoming communications and family nights from your child’s college counselors.

IMPACT Saturday 

The IMPACT program is limited to top-performing YES Prep students. If your child has a 3.4 GPA or above, they received a family letter inviting you to attend IMPACT Saturday from their college counselor this week in Junior Seminar.  

Our college counselors will offer the program Saturday, January 28, 2023, from 9 a.m. - 1 p.m., hosted virtually. 

Please encourage them to RSVP and plan to attend the program with your child. We will hold the workshops in English and Spanish. Even if English or Spanish is not your preferred language, please plan to attend. We will be captioning the program in additional languages, supported through Microsoft Translator.

We hope you will encourage your child to take advantage of these opportunities.
