Thirty students from Stockton, California, are having a life-changing experience.
Allison Silva’s fourth-graders from Taylor Leadership Academy are on campus at the University of Notre Dame this weekend and attending the football game today against Duke in an excursion that is more than just a four-day, three-night cross country field trip. It’s paving the way for the children to achieve their dreams.
Taylor is a certified AVID school (advancement via individual determination) which targets low income areas and students who would be the first in their families to go to college. The AVID platform places a heavy emphasis on college readiness and preparedness, even in the earliest elementary grades.
