Chaperoned Carver students will soon board their chartered bus at the Carver Community Center for a life-changing, road trip over their spring school break to the schools they aspire to attend. The 48th Annual Spring College Tour will introduce middle and high school students to the rigors and joys of a college education. School administrators, admissions and financial aid officers, college students including many former Carver YDP students, and others give the tours, make presentations and interact with the visiting Carver students. Whether asking questions, touring the campuses, or sharing meals with former Carver peers now excelling at these excellent schools, the goal is to motivate each visiting Carver student to envision their futures as a successful college student.
