Booker Middle School has been named a College For Every Student (CFES) Brilliant Pathways School of Distinction. CFES Brilliant Pathways, founded in 1991 in central New York, aims to help students unlock their brightest futures. CFES Brilliant Pathways empowers educators and gives communities a chance to participate in the 21st-century economy, leveling the playing field for 100,000 students for over 25 years. Their programs introduce students to college and career possibilities, provide crucial resources to educators— such as professional development, support and evaluation, and workshops—and help students and their families demystify the path to college. Booker Middle School not only developed and executed an exemplary plan for its CFES Scholars, but also involved the entire school in the CFES core practices of Mentoring, Essential Skills, and Pathways.

“We are thrilled to be selected as a CFES Brilliant Pathways School of Distinction,” commented Dr. LaShawn Frost, principal of Booker Middle School. “Our team strives hard every day to ensure a high-quality education for our students. The foundation for college and career success starts early. Our plan embraces CFES principles and enables students to hone in on vital concepts they will carry with them well beyond their time at Booker Middle. We are empowering them to take hold of their brilliant futures.”
