  • Access First Virtual Activity for 7th and 8th graders

    Even in this virtual climate, Early Awareness remains committed to increase the awareness of the opportunity to pursue education after high school among 7th and 8th grade students and their families.  A variety of virtual activities with a wide range of topics have been created to share with the class of 2025 and 2026. With the first activity, Access WebQuest, students will learn how Access is making a difference in Hampton Roads and how they can become a part of the program. 


    With the share of this one link, students will be able to click on the link to access the activity. The responses will automatically come back to me.
