High School Programs

Counseling Component

The PUENTE High School Program is designed to help students graduate from high school, become college eligible, and enroll in college through the efforts and support provided by a PUENTE-trained team.
Puente students take an accelerated 9th and 10th grade sequence of college preparatory English with the same Puente-trained teacher, who integrates Latino and multicultural literature into the district’s mandated core curriculum.
The Puente counselor monitors student progress towards college readiness and motivates students to be successful in high school. The Puente counselor ensures that students engage in leadership and cultural activities and leads them on visits to a range of colleges and universities. The Puente counselor regularly engages parents in workshops focused on supporting their children in their college and career goals.
