College Bound

In partnership with Boys & Girls Clubs of Central Orange Coast, NOVA Academy is pleased to offer College Bound, a year-round program that provides:

  • Individualized academic advisement, mentoring, and resources to ensure students graduate high school and have a postsecondary plan
  • Daily academic support
  • Fee waivers to support college access (e.g. applications, tests, housing)
  • Free field trips to college campuses
  • Opportunities for students to explore career interests and connect with career professionals
  • Support that helps prepare participants for a successful college experience

At the heart of this program is a one-on-one academic advisement strategy through which youth receive the guidance, encouragement, and resources they need to set and obtain their educational goals.

Students at NOVA Academy are eligible to participate in College Bound with a commitment to:

  • Meet with their academic advisor at least once a month
  • Attend workshops, field trips, and events
  • Participate in the program until high school graduation
