Joining forces to support military students, families in academic success
Colorado’s military students and their families are getting the academic tools and supports they need to become college ready — for our country’s military children success depends on having consistent, high-quality educational opportunities whenever and wherever their families may be transferred.
CEI’s Colorado Legacy Schools (CLS) AP program partners with the National Math and Science Initiative’s (NMSI) College Readiness Program for Military Families to help military children attending five Colorado Springs-area high schools become college-ready with STEM and AP courses in Colorado schools serving large numbers of students in military families.
AP credits are especially valuable to students in military families because they are portable as families move and students transfer to new schools.
“Students of military families, children of active and retired military members also serve,” said CLS Director Greg Hessee. “Making sure students from military families are prepared for college is key. We think it’s very important that we make sure that their parents’ sacrifice doesn’t take away from their children’s opportunities to achieve in life.”
