Choosing to Succeed Program
Choosing to Succeed Program (CTS)
Funded by the University of Michigan-Flint, the Choosing to Succeed Program (CTS) is designed to increase the number and preparation of students with a particular emphasis on students from under-represented groups such as those from educationally or economically disadvantaged backgrounds and those from urban or other areas where the college access and success rates are significantly below the national average. Students are selected from the Flint, Beecher, Westwood Heights and area school districts and provided with academic and support services to enhance their graduation from high school and to challenge them to pursue post-secondary education. The CTS program is divided into two components: middle school grades 6-8, and high school grades 9-12. CTS administers a commuter summer program and a comprehensive series of academic year workshops and enrichment activities. An incentive scholarship component is available for a selected group of high achieving CTS participants who become eligible for a full scholarship to UM-Flint upon successful completion of the program and regular admission to UM-Flint.
