PROMOTING HIGHER EDUCATION!
We believe in the power of education to help young men and women become flourishing and prosperous adults. Sadly, in the state of Texas an alarming 22% of high school students fail to graduate and minority students are two times more likely to leave school before graduating!
At THC, we believe that exposing students to the options available to them after they graduate can and does serve as a motivating factor to complete high school. This is why our Plant City students are invited each year to join us on college road trips and an annual college tour. Through these adventures, we're able to achieve our objective of enriching students' prospectives on collegiate academic opportunities, facilities, student life and culture. For this year's college tour...
...WE'RE HEADED TO LOS ANGELES!
This October, we're flying to the west coast to expose our students to a variety of colleges and universities, such as:
California Institute of Technology (Cal Tech)
University of South California
Charles R. Drew University

On Friday evening, students will participate in an etiquette dinner at a high-end restaurant to practice key social skills that the students will need during college and/or in future careers.
