Our Mission

We support all students in accessing and securing post-secondary opportunities that help them achieve their dreams.

We expose our students to a variety of post-secondary options, including competitive four year colleges, that expand their ideas about what is possible. We remain a strong support for them as they transition from being Manual Thunderbolts to their next adventure in college or careers.

We don’t settle for lesser opportunities for our students.
