SJ Aspires Awards

What are SJ Aspires’ Awards?

SJ Aspires’ awards cover a wide range of resources, projects, and achievements that promote college and career readiness. The program has broken them down into Core Awards and Supplemental Awards. Some awards are simple to receive and some are more difficult; some awards can be completed individually and some require participation in school-based activities or feedback from others. As students complete these awards, they (or their school) sends evidence of their completion to SJ Aspires which tracks each student’s progress through the program.
