In Summary - Columbia Heights Educational Campus

Because every child deserves our best.

A CHEC education must prepare our students to compete on an equal footing with students and professional colleagues who may have had more financial resources. Our students are fully up to the job and show it every day. We are asking you to help give them the tools they need:

  • A tablet for every junior and senior student - to prepare them for success at college and the workplace, by giving them the means for anytime-anywhere learning.

  • Early college access - offers students a head start and a cost savings by taking undergraduate courses while still in high school. Funding is needed for tuition, textbooks and transportation.

  • Mastery of a foreign language - as companies look at markets abroad, mastery of language and culture will help job seekers stand out. Funding is needed to hire teachers and buy software licenses for language instruction programs.

  • Tutoring and homework assistance - is provided to students who are academically at-risk, need additional instructional time or who wish to accelerate their mastery of subjects. Funds are needed for tutors.

  • College scholarship gala - an annual event to raise money for needs-based scholarships for college-bound seniors.

  • Professional development for teachers - high student achievement is directly related to teacher competence. Funding is needed for research and training in best practices.

  • Core support (general operating) - our continued success requires flexible investments in staff time and expertise to operate and increase many of our services. Funds are needed to support these core administrative functions.

For 36 years, it has been the mission of Multicultural Career Intern Program (MCIP) to create a level playing field for our students and to help them achieve their highest potential.  Many of you have contributed greatly to our past success. However, our work is far from over. In fact it has just begun.
