The Minnesota Valley Area Learning Center has been selected to participate in the Ramp-Up to Readiness program sponsored by the University of Minnesota.

Ramp-Up to Readiness is a school-wide guidance program designed to increase the number and diversity of students who graduate from high school with the knowledge, skills and habits necessary for success in a high quality college program.

Through participation in Ramp Up to Readiness, students in grades 6 - 12 progress toward readiness in five areas:  Academic, Admissions, Career, Financial and Personal and Social Readiness, areas that are critical to helping kids to ...make the transition from high school to career.
