REACH Up Now (RUN) is a two year program dedicated to preparing students for success in college. Our individual counseling sessions help students set personal and college goals while establishing processes for reaching them. Sessions build on the experiences and lessons learned from the summer programs.

In addition to individual college counseling and goal setting sessions, students in RUN are eligible to participate in extensive college prep sessions where they research college options, write college essays, participate in interactive mock interviews and learn a number of key life skills. They attend sessions to prepare for the ACT, are offered opportunities to meet with college admissions representatives, and receive guidance in completing FAFSA and scholarship applications. 

RUN students may be selected to participate in a Scholar Group. Scholar programs provide focused and challenging opportunities for students to develop their academic, social and personal strengths as they explore possible career paths and prepare for college. Sessions are facilitated by community leaders who offer real world experience in the field of interest. Current Scholar Groups include Healthcare, Business, Law, Engineering, Communications, Service, Creative, and Leadership.
