The Dell Scholars Program recognizes 300 students each year who have overcome significant obstacles to attend college. The program aims to provide students with everything they need to begin and complete college. In addition to receiving $20,000 to complete their higher education over the course of six years, the program also provides technology, resources, mentoring and access to a private networking community.
AVID (Advancement Via Individual Determination) is a college-readiness system designed to increase the number of students who enroll in four-year colleges. LRSD offers AVID at nine schools.
