STRIVE stands for Students Taking a Renewed Interest in the Value of Education and is a mentoring and scholarship program to help high school seniors improve grades, attendance and school performance.
The program was developed on the premise that students who are academically ranked in the lower half of their class have the same natural abilities and gifts as those who are in the upper half. The difference is often motivation, work habits, self-esteem, time-management, attendance and performance in the classroom. STRIVE challenges these students to improve their work, gain self-confidence, and discover the satisfaction of achievement. The purpose of STRIVE is to help students set clear goals for their final year of high school, including improving their grades and graduation. A bonus for these students is they would qualify for additional scholarship possibilities for those interested in continuing their education.
