College Prep Winds Down and Gears Up

Pictured is a group of eleventh graders from Anacostia High School visiting the University of Florida. The group traveled to colleges in southern states during the first week of April as part of RISE-DC’s College Prep program. The students recently met their college mentors for the first time and are in the middle of a three-month SAT prep class. Last year’s group has been accepted to the following colleges they visited: North Carolina A&T, South Carolina State, and North Carolina-Central. College acceptance letters are still trickling in.
