College Readiness

YES Prep is a commitment to academic and social development. Our students’ time is designed to ensure that every student who graduates YES Prep is prepared to pursue and complete a college degree or a rigorous post-secondary opportunity most aligned to their needs.  

Every student who graduates from YES Prep should be prepared to lead a choice-filled life and should be equipped with the knowledge and skills to be a productive and contributing member of their community.  

Robust and comprehensive college counseling is a central component of the YES Prep College Initiatives program. We do this work to ensure students are Accepted, Matriculate and Persist (AMP) through college by exposing students to the five pillars of our College Initiatives programming—College Advising, Seminar, Student Opportunities, Alumni Support and College Partnerships.
