"... it is a great way to learn about what the real business world is about. "Amazing experience for high school students to learn about professionalism. Gives us the edge over others.
"Very good program.''
High school matters. Your decisions and achievements in these years determine your college choices. More importantly, they determine the type of person you will be.
Each student is assigned a mentor who will meet individually with him each month. The mentor will help a student find practical and useful applications of the material presented at the seminars.
The Edge is a four-year program that gives you the practical, intellectual, and moral foundation to be a man of character. Through a combination of seminars, one-on-one mentoring, interactive sessions, and career presentations by successful professionals, it helps you develop the skills and attitudes necessary to be effective in college and later on as a father, a professional, and a citizen.
The Edge is also an opportunity for personal development through the interaction with teachers, staff, and other motivated students who seek to make the most of their lives. From these dealings will come quality friendships that many times extend well beyond the high school years.
