Johnson says the Technology Ambassador program inspired her, “After I became a Technology Ambassador, I discovered that I really wanted to learn even more about technology, I am really enjoying these college courses.”
“Whether it be by dual enrollment opportunities, student organizations, or a combination, few experiences could be more invaluable. Experiences like these are why Dr. Howard Fuller Collegiate Academy scholars have achieved a 100% college acceptance rate eight years in a row,” says Parker
The school’s dual enrollment scholars are making huge gains in both the academic and soft skills necessary for college persistence, says Courtney Steggall, the school’s Dual Enrollment Coordinator. Steggall believes this helps make students more prepared to enter college full-time after graduation from high school.
"Dual Enrollment exemplifies our mission of sending scholars to and through college,” adds Steggall. “It's an amazing experience being able to work with scholars who are beginning to live out our mission while still in high school.”
Sondra Johnson persistence is inspiring. Her path through the dual enrollment program demonstrates that despite the pandemic and the difficulties it has presented, scholars can choose to continue their educational journey and even thrive.
Dr. Howard Fuller Collegiate Academy is an inner-city, non-profit, public, charter school with serving over 300, mostly African American, 9th to 12th-grade scholars and their families. For eight consecutive years 100% of the school’s scholars have earned college acceptances and our class of 2020 earned over $3.5 million in scholarships.
