Access to Student Assistance Programs In Reach of Everyone
The statewide ASPIRE page can be found here.
With ASPIRE (Access to Student Assistance Programs In Reach of Everyone) our students are becoming more prepared-- with information, finances, and attitudes—to transition to education, training and careers after high school.
Crow ASPIRE is run entirely by volunteers, with support, materials, training and resources provided by the State of Oregon ASPIRE program. Oregon Student Assistance Commission (OSAC) oversees the ASPIRE program along with scholarships and accreditation of Oregon colleges and universities. Crow ASPIRE works closely with the Senior Seminar class to help seniors prepare for their lives beyond high school.
In the five years since the ASPIRE program began at Crow High School, the percentage of graduating seniors attending a college has gone from 38% to 96%! Our program was recently highlighted in a presentation to the Education Investment Board by the statewide ASPIRE coordinator. Click here to download a .doc file of the presentation summary.
ASPIRE volunteers are being sought. Requirements include having an interest in helping students, passing a background check, and the ability to volunteer one to four hours per week. Volunteers do not need to have gone to college themselves; training and support will be provided. Email Kim Wilson (email@example.com) for more information.
