Our Curriculum

What do you want to do with your life once you graduate from high school?

What do you need to do to reach that goal?

At Roads to Success, we believe that the answers to these two questions are critical to young people success – in middle school, high school, and beyond. It is our mission to instill in young people a sense of Self-Awareness and Independence – the knowl­edge that their actions make a difference – and provide practical Mastery skills they will need to realize their goals.

Curriculum Overview

Roads to Success College Access and Career Development Curriculum  is a research-based curriculum for middle school students to young adults that helps them make the connection between school and their future aspirations. Some components of the curriculum include:

  • Career Research

Roads to Success empowers young people to make education and career choices that match their indi­vidual skills and interests.

Our program spans the critical years of adolescence, helping young adults explore college and career possibilities, develop education plans, and understand their own role in achieving success.

Curriculum Features

Day School Program

  • Integrated 6-year curriculum, grades 7-12
  • Weekly in-school workshops designed to engage adolescents
  • Internet-based college and career research
  • Portfolios documenting student accomplishments
  • Simulations that build critical thinking, teamwork, and leadership skills
  • We recognize that adolescence is a crucial time for students, a period when they become increasingly at risk of disengaging from school. Many students lack parental or other adult role models who have dem­onstrated to them the value of striving toward meaningful educational and career goals. In economically depressed communities, students are rarely aware of the wide array of careers available to them, and have little sense of the connections between schooling and a rewarding adult life.
  • RTS helps students develop plans for the future, stay focused on their schooling, and acquire critical skills to facilitate the transition from the teen years to adulthood. More concretely, the program is intended to increase rates of high school graduation and post-secondary education completion and foster career success.
