Propel is excited to host the University of Pittsburgh’s “Investing Now” Program. Created in 1988, this is a college preparatory program created to stimulate, support, and recognize the high academic performance of pre-college students from groups that are historically underrepresented in science, technology, engineering and mathematics majors and careers. The purpose of the program is to ensure that participants are well prepared for matriculation to the collegiate level.
Program focus areas include student support (academic advising, tutoring, workshops), academic enrichment (summer program and hands-on-science and engineering activities), college planning (college preparation and financial aid workshops), career awareness career seminars and summer research) and parent involvement.

An active lifestyle is vital to academic and personal growth — and colder weather shouldn’t interfere! 14 students from Propel Braddock Hills High School will be proving that, beginning on February 16th!
