"Southville has prepared me for college. I've learned all the necessary skills and knowledge, not just in academics, but also in values. Southville also taught me how to become more independent and use my resources wisely."


"The Portfolio Assessment for Southville Students (PASS) program has also helped me greatly. When I was still in Southville, I never saw the purpose of PASS, but now that I'm in college, I realized the importance of being able to write research papers. In just one school year, I've experienced writing more than 5 papers, but my PASS training made things easier. I know how to look for information, summarize, paraphrase, cite, and many more. If it were not for the thesis training I had in Southville, I would be having a real hard time."


"Another thing that Southville taught me was time management. I was a very busy student when I was in high school because I joined many organizations, and each had their activities. This not only brought me joy, but also honed my skill of managing my time wisely."


"College is easier because of the foundation that Southville built for me."
