BHS students provided access to post-secondary opportunities



Students will also complete a survey before and after each campus visit to help develop and promote the College Access Event even further in the long-run.

“Our idea in the long-range would be to develop a College Access Team like Georgia College has ambassadors. Maybe there can be a few students who would be interested in sharing highlights of Baldwin High School and teachers can have a half-hour college discussion in the classroom versus taking a field trip,” Keim said. “We would be building our own resource.”

All three visits will be recorded on video for school counselors and teachers to use the CD’s as another resource inside the classroom. 

“Baldwin High School has three counselors for 1,300 to 1,400 students. The resources are limited, and even though they have college nights and college fairs, students don’t have the opportunity to actually visit some of these colleges that are right here in their own backyard,” Keim said. “It’s incredibly generous of the school system to let these students go for two days. By having support of the school and teachers, I think this is an opportunity they will not find in other communities. I think this has great potential to become an annual event.”
