EAOP focuses on preparing a well-rounded participant who has the ability to succeed academically. Students participate in rigorous academic programs, an array of advising services, test preparation and test-taking programs, culturally enriching activities and opportunities. These are the categorical standards of the program in which we commit.
- We commit to providing on-going academic advising for participants to support successful completion of the required 'a-g' course pattern in California and to increase the available opportunities to pursue postsecondary education upon high school graduation. The standard is known as "Academic Advising."
- We commit to supporting students to improve their academic skills, to master advanced high school curriculum, and developing opportunities for all participants. The standard is known as "Academic Enrichment."
- We commit to providing participants and their families, as well as educators the receipt of appropriate and necessary information to assist and prepare for enrollment of participants into institutions of higher education. The standard is known as "College Knowledge."
- We commit to preparing participants to take the college entrance exams necessary for eligibility to selective colleges and universities. The standard is known as "Entrance Exams."
