You wake up and it hits you


OVER


Don’t lie. You know you’re going to miss it


No more opening circle


No more corny skits


No more pancakes


No more new friends from other schools


No more apprenticeships


No more college trips


No more aggy Team Leaders


In the Beginning


You only talked to kids from your middle school


Now even the Rogers and Mildred girls are friends


At 8GA this year you‌


visited lots of colleges….

• W


applied and got accepted to great high schools‌


But what makes 8GA so special are the people: the apprentices, the CTs and Writing Coaches‌


And the Team Leaders usually forced it, but it is always because we care.


Team Leaders make sure you do your homework


We dress up in costumes


We genuinely like hanging out with you


We’re happy to go to work, because our job is working with you!


We keep in touch with you after your go to high school and connect you to summer jobs and good programs


We check you in. And call your mom if you’re late (it’s just to make sure your safe, really)


We plan special events to showcase and celebrate your hard work.


We celebrate your accomplishments and your growth into high school ready young men and women!


We paint funny pictures on your face, because why not?


We hold you to high expectations, and we know in a few years, you’ll look back and you’ll understand why.


But Team Leaders don’t do the work of 8GA alone, an army of CTs and Writing Coaches volunteer their time‌


because we believe in you


and want you to have the opportunity to succeed.


It all started at GO WEEK


One thing is clear ‌


in 2013 8GA8 will graduate from high school and enroll in college!
