University Partners with Lima City Schools and Nutrien for Closing the Achievement Gap Camp
University of Findlay will host a day camp for students in Lima City Schools’ Closing The Achievement Gap (CTAG) program on Monday, May 13. Nearly 30 eighth graders will have the opportunity to learn about Findlay’s College of Pharmacy, College of Health Professions programs and the University as a whole.
Developed as a statewide program, CTAG helps underserved, diverse middle school and high school students achieve success in academics, college and career exploration. Just 35 miles south of the University of Findlay, Lima City Schools’ CTAG program pairs students with community members who mentor, motivate and help create a pathway to success.
With the support of a corporate gift from Nutrien in Lima, the University of Findlay has partnered with Lima City Schools to offer day and residential camps for the next three years. Findlay’s goal is to help these students see that a meaningful life and productive career is something that is not only possible, but something the University is committed to helping them achieve.
In 2020 and 2021, the University will host day and residential camps for Lima’s CTAG students. These camps will include staying overnight in the dorms and learning about more of the programs the University has to offer.
