The College Achievement & Multicultural Program for Unique Students (CAMPUS) is an academic and college preparation initiative that began in the spring 2002 that currently serves over 300 students in grades 9-12. CAMPUS is designed to meet the specific needs of first-generation college-bound students and/or students from low socio-economic backgrounds attending Loudoun County Public Schools.
CAMPUS seeks to provide support and encouragement to students who demonstrate the ability to achieve academic success and college admission. Admission to, and graduation from, college are among the goals of CAMPUS. Students must commit to attending mandatory CAMPUS meetings and/or classes during the school day and CAMPUS activities throughout the year. Parents also are an integral part of CAMPUS and its success. Parents are encouraged to participate in CAMPUS initiatives and to support their students in the college search and application process.
The enrollment process for the CAMPUS program begins in the eighth grade. All eighth students must complete an online application with one teacher or school counselor recommendation, which will be reviewed by the CAMPUS Application Review Committee for acceptance or denial into the program. The same application process applies for high school students between the grades of 9-11. An online application may be obtained through the LCPS website.
