What is the Tenacity High School Scholarship Program?

The Tenacity High School Scholarship Program, is designed to provide Tenacity students with financial funding that will support student professional development, skill building, and college and career readiness.

Extending Scholarship Program to Current High School Students

Extending the scholarship program to current Tenacity high school students is another way to help prepare and support our youth with exposure to college and career preparation opportunities before they enter a post-secondary program or decide to go straight into a career. Having career knowledge and skills to develop concrete post-secondary school plans is extremely important and one of our goals. Providing our students with the cultural knowledge to understand the expectations of the college environment and labor market is important to their college and career readiness. This opportunity can help our students gain knowledge, broaden their horizons, and deepen their maturity. By providing financial assistance which supports increased access to additional programs and opportunities, we will be supporting the closure of the post-secondary success gap which impacts our students.
