Preparing every student for college

Scott students, looking forward to college

Our goal is to prepare every student for college or career. Scott students participate in the AVID and Gear-up college-readiness programs, learn from local professionals and college recruiters on-site on “College and Career” days and adopt a PAC 12 college or university for their classroom to remind them daily: you can do this. Learn more about our college-readiness focus.
