What is CAMPUS:
CAMPUS (College Achievement Minority Program for Unique Students) is an academic and college preparation program designed to meet the specific needs of students from historically underrepresented groups in higher education and prospective first-generation college student in Loudoun County Public Schools.
A LCPS guidance initiative, CAMPUS began in the spring of 2002. The program now serves close to 500 students in grades 9 -12. CAMPUS seeks to provide support and encouragement to students who demonstrate the ability to achieve academic success and college admission.
Students must commit to attending mandatory CAMPUS meetings and/or classes during the school day and to attending CAMPUS activities throughout the year. Parents are also an integral part of CAMPUS and its success. Parents are asked to participate in CAMPUS initiatives and to support their children in the college search and application process. Admission to and graduation from college are among the goals of the CAMPUS program.
