Our Mission


Our Mission


The mission of Early Academic Outreach Program (EAOP) is to increase the number of educationally disadvantaged students who have the opportunity to achieve a post-secondary education and/or who are prepared to matriculate to a four-year college or university.

There are four strategies that frame EAOP and they are specifically focused on achieving post-secondary access and success for more students.

Academic Enrichment
EAOP students 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 can 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 to prepare) for a post-secondary education.
