College and Career Readiness Bootcamp
In August 2016, the Center for College and Career Readiness piloted a Summer Bootcamp for rising juniors at Hiram Johnson High School. Approximately 40 students attended the intensive, four-day bootcamp. They participated in various workshops and were engaged in interactive activities all aimed at improving their college and career readiness skills. Each student gained a wealth of experience and materials from a variety of sources all committed to their future success. The Center for College and Career Readiness is eager to continue these bootcamps in order to extend our reach to students in the regional pipeline.
