Hoover High School College Prep Day

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - Students at Hoover High School in the Talmadge area spent the day gearing up for college.

It was College Prep Day, a campus-wide event in an effort to build the college-going culture. It's designed to give students the confidence, awareness, and practice for what they can expect in the future.

"All of our 9th, 10th, and 11th graders are taking a practice exams for the PSAT or the ACT, and all of our seniors are participating in senior college seminars," Hoover High School educational collaborative Lillian Garcia said.

The seminars include how to apply for college and also, choosing a major or career.

Also, if students at Hoover High meet certain benchmarks, including passing exams like the ones given Wednesday, during their senior year they will get guaranteed admission to San Diego State University.
