Transition to High School Mentoring Program

Liberty Partnerships Programs (LPP)

The Transition to High School Program is a year-long preparatory program, supporting rising 9th graders through mentoring, tutoring and classroom instructions and strategies that leads to academic success.

The program begins the summer before high school, with morning classes and mentoring activities lead by Hofstra University college students. Classes are held Monday-Thursday, 9:30am to 3:00pm, for two weeks, starting the first Monday of August.

The program continues during the Saturday Scholars Academy, where students are now in the 9th grade. College student mentoring foci include practices designed to develop competence, build confidence, create connections and extend care.
