Opportunities knock often on the doors of Booker High. On any given day, students across all grades could be engaged with a master teacher in a dance class, ask questions of a doctor about jobs in the medical field, or experience a visiting artist explaining his work.  Administrators, teachers, coaches, mentors and others work tirelessly to ensure every student has an opportunity to learn on a deep level and dream broadly about prospects for the future.
Two new partnerships will open new doors for Booker grads. In addition to Financial Aid Night and weekly visits from college representatives, which have been hallmarks of the Booker Way to training and higher education, there is a new addition:  Direct Admission to USF and New College.
Read about the program here.
