High School

Three students smiling.Blugold Beginnings provides their students with the necessary tools to achieve academic success throughout high school and helps to build the bridge to a post-secondary education. We offer assistance in many academic subjects provided by our various skilled mentors, spanning nearly every topic at three high schools within the greater Eau Claire area.

When a student enters the program they are assigned a mentor who provides them with the Blugold Beginnings College Knowledge workbook that is a step-by-step guide on how to attain a post-secondary education. Mentors provide students with individual help with homework, test taking strategies, preparing for the ACT, and finding the best post-secondary school for the student.

Blugold Beginnings also concentrates its time on several social events. This is a chance for the students to gain knowledge about the university in a different atmosphere, in addition to the classroom. These events promote mentor-student affiliation and are vital to the success of the program. Events also make it possible for students to connect with other students and make the learning process much more enjoyable. These activities provide a memorable, real life experience of campus life at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire.
