Students from across the state recently met with nearly 50 colleges and universities at an AVID College Fair hosted by Aurora Public Schools. The AVID program focuses on closing the achievement gap by targeting students who come from challenging economic backgrounds. The program provides students the support and preparation they need to succeed after high school, such as applying for college and financial aid.
Gateway students Babita Gautam and Xavier Delk were among the APS students who attended the fair.
“I plan on attending University of Colorado Denver, which will make me the first of my family to attend college,” said Gautam.
Delk, on the other hand, is still considering his options. “I haven’t settled on a college yet,” said Delk. “I’m still trying to decide which college will be the best fit for me.”
One of the APS Core Beliefs is: community partnerships provide vital resources and opportunities for students and families. We are grateful for partnerships like AVID that help our students shape successful futures.
