Is college Worth it?

Is college Worth it?

09/08

The give and take of the 21st century has some people questioning whether college is a good investment for students. Statistics show and what we firmly believe here at Attollo is that education and income are directly related. In order to achieve high levels of education and gain acceptance to tier one schools, students must know some fundamental laws of success. This is why we teach students to sacrifice what they want immediately, right now, for what will be much greater in the long run. Our students learn right away that sacrificing for the future is not going to be easy but can be rewarding process.  

 

Although income is not the only way to measure success, a wage increase often comes hand in hand with job satisfaction and community involvement. We want our students to be fulfilled and productive members of their future communities. To us this data is a constant reminder of why Lancaster needs programs like Attollo. This program exists to educate students on the college process. This process consists of topics such as financial aid, how to apply for college, how to succeed in interviews, and how to grow a strong resume. By determining a student’s need early during his/her high school career, Attollo can guide and inform students on the steps they need to take to reach their college goals.

 

College-prep can be difficult and time-consuming. This is where sacrifice takes a large role in our high school students lives. They need to give up the immediate gratification.  Through the battle of maintaining focus you develop self-awareness and become disciplined.  Attollo has alumni attending Delaware State, Temple, American University and many other schools. Jade, who goes to American University, will tell you that the knowledge and experience she acquired at Attollo is well worth the sacrifices she made and more. All of our Scholars will succeed because they will not only have a great GPA at the end of their senior year, but they will have acquired a strong sense of self, excellent networking skills, and the knowledge that they can accomplish their goals. The staff and supporters of Attollo will hold Scholars accountable to their dreams. It will take some sacrifice in the short term but Attollo will be there to support them on their path to an even brighter future.
