CAMPUS is an academic and college preparation program designed to meet the specific needs of historically underrepresented students and first generation college students in Loudoun County. CAMPUS started as a Counseling Services initiative in the spring 2002 and now serves over 500 selected students in grades 9-12 throughout the county. Students apply in the spring of their eighth grade year or during the fall of grades 10-11.
CAMPUS seeks to provide support and encouragement to students who demonstrate the ability to achieve academic success and college admission. Students commit to attending mandatory CAMPUS meetings or the class during the school day and attending CAMPUS activities throughout the year.
Parents are also an integral part of CAMPUS and its success. Parents are expected to participate in CAMPUS initiatives and support their children in the college search and application process. Graduation from college is the measure of CAMPUS success.
