Initiatives held back to back on Thursday.

A Ramp Up to Readiness and Minnesota Principals' Academy were held on Thursday, October 10 at the University of Minnesota Crookston.

Ramp-Up to Readiness™ is a school-wide guidance program designed to increase the number and diversity of students who graduate from high school with the knowledge, skills, and habits necessary for success in a high-quality college program. It focuses on grades 6-12 in five areas: academic, admissions, career, financial and personal social readiness.

The goal of the Minnesota Principals' Academy is to create a statewide network of district and charter school leaders who are motivated and have the skills to create and sustain schools in which all students are on the path to college readiness by the end of high school.

The event was hosted by the Center for Adult Learning in Bede Ballroom, Sargeant Student Center and 30 northwestern Minnesota school districts were represented all of which partner with UMC and the College in the High School program.
