Throughout the year, Project ENRICH students will hear from a variety of persons about every aspect of preparing for college. This page will be a home for archiving presentations and material that these speakers provide so that students can go back and review, and so that parents can follow along with the curriculum. While Project ENRICH encourages students to take good notes and keep track of materials that are handed out, we are living in an increasingly paperless society where the ability to access documents online is imperative. These materials will be posted on this page as they are disseminated to students in the program.
