What is REACH?
REACH is a course for students in the middle with academic potential capable of completing a college degree. REACH is an approach to encouraging students in the academic middle to achieve greater heights with rigorous courses while offering the support to be successful in those courses. REACH encourages acceleration over remediation. REACH provides tutorial assistance, academic counseling, assistance for students in meeting UC/CSU admissions requirements, assistance in college search and selection, career exploration and awareness including guest speakers, and CAASPP/SAT/ACT Preparation. Students learn effective study skills, collaboration, inquiry, Cornell Notes, writing, and share the goal of attending a four-year college. Applications and qualifying standards must be met for acceptance.
