College planning is a key element to working with our high school youth. Freshmen and sophomores learn about required classes in order to apply to California’s UC or CSU schools, while juniors and seniors focus on the application process. Students should aim for the highest GPA (grade point average) possible but can set up some tutoring time for assistance. Colleges want to see four years’ worth of community services AND extracurricular activities, so TAMIT offers summer camps, campus tours, and volunteer service. Qualifying students will earn a Letter of Recommendation from TAMIT to campuses and scholarships of their choice.
With a college education, people can get better jobs, which impacts your income, your home environment, health, happiness and tribal community. On average, a 4 year graduate will earn $1 million more than a high school graduate (Source: US Census Bureau). College can also be a time of personal and intellectual growth.
