Each school will be facilitating a momentum program to reengage students through shared responsibilities with the goal of academic, professional, and personal success. 

Adelante! is a one-year scholarship/momentum program designed to help improve academic standing as well as support, challenge, and celebrate students along the path to graduation. The primary goals of Adelante! are the inclusion, retention and well-being of all students. The program features academic advising, professional mentoring, scholarship support, extracurricular programming and interactive peer communities as ways to support students as they navigate the academic experience. Adelante! offers $500 of scholarship support for successful completion. We want to help you CROSS THE CISTERN!

AALANA students are especially encouraged to apply.
