Target New Transitions

Adjusting to high school can be academically and socially challenging for many 9th graders. Target New Transitions brings high-achieving college students and at-risk high-school freshmen together Saturday mornings for three hours of concentrated homework and high-school transition support. 

Together the two groups of students spend three hours on Saturday mornings working on homework and developing supportive relationships that provide the tools 9th graders need to succeed in high school and to realistically envision their future transition to college or productive workforce employment. Loyola students get excellent field experience, while also giving back to their community.
