The Office of College Guidance is comprised of two programs:
Scholars are provided an understanding of how the academic, social and extracurricular aspects of their education affect their prospects for College Admission. Wight Foundation Scholars receive:
Guidance with High School Course Selection
Access to Academic Year & Summer Enrichment Opportunities
College Admission Process Counseling & College Application Guidance
Our primary goal is to have our Scholars enter and graduate from college. Upon entering their first year, students are officially considered College Scholars. Some of the resources the Wight Foundation College Scholars have access to include:
College Academic Advising
Personal and Professional Development Seminars
$750 Book Stipend & Annual Financial Aid Consultation
Career Guidance and Placement
Each component works in conjunction with a range of Wight Foundation resources and programs to support Scholars and their families.
