    • The Habits of Mind are essential skills characterizing successful individuals such as curiosity, creativity, responsibility, and persistence. When families and educators create environments fostering these habits and when youth understand how to react in challenging situations, they learn how to be successful in academics, career, and life.
    • Available in Spanish and English.

    • Students receive support with the transition from high school to college on the following:
      • Completion of college matriculation (ex: submission of official high school transcripts, AP/IB scores, immunizations, etc.)
      • Topics inherent to student success (ex: Academic planning, building community with CSUSM, scholarships, internships, the power of networking, communication with professors, etc.)
