The mission of Early Academic Outreach Program (EAOP) is to increase the number of educationally disadvantaged students who have the opportunity to achieve a postsecondary education and/or who are prepared to matriculate to a four year university/ college.
There are four strategies that frame EAOP, and they are specifically focused on achieving postsecondary access and success for more students.
These strategies are:
- Academic Enrichment
- Participants improve basic academic skills, master advanced high school curriculum, and have the opportunity to participate in university projects.
- Entrance Exams
- EAOP students are prepared for taking the college entrance exams necessary for eligibility to selective colleges and universities like the University of California.
- Academic Advising
- EAOP students receive individual Academic Plan (IAP) and ongoing advising to ensure that they are successfully complete the required "a-g" course pattern.
- College Knowledge
- EAOP students, their families, and educators in EAOP schools receive timely, appropriate and necessary information to prepare (or assist more students prepare) for a post-secondary education.
