By creating a fun and exciting program that keeps student grades top of mind among participants, the ulitmate goal of the program is to increase performance in the classroom. Student grades and attendance are therefore the two primary measurement outcomes for the program.
Students are required to participate in weekly sessions that consist of guest speakers and workshops. In order for students to be successful in life, it is important that they understand the importance of integrity, work ethic, leadership and personal accountability. These values will be stressed throughout the TEAM EXCEL program, in addition to the academic component.
The ultimate goal of Excel to Excellence is to ensure that all students become productive citizens. TEAM EXCEL will expose students to different career opportunities and provide them with the resources to pursue their dreams.
