The "A" is for Academics!
Lamplighters, Inc. believes that all of our young men should graduate from high school ready for college, careers, and life, prepared to pursue the future of their choosing.
Teresa Jackson leads the Lamplighter Academic/College and Career Team. The Lamplighters conduct academic sessions once a month to assist young men with homework, essay writing, math practice, and standardized test prep. This month the focus is on FAFSA completion. As many as one in seven students eligible for financial aid who enroll in college do not complete the FAFSA.
FAFSA completion is positively associated with college enrollment, and FAFSA completion rates can be important early indicators of postsecondary access and success. All Lamplighters are required to complete the FAFSA prior to January of their senior year. Learn more about the academic program below:
