Monmouth Future Scholars is an academic mentoring program with the goal of increasing the numbers of low-income, first generation students graduating from high school. It is a pre-college bridge program that targets the 6th through 12th grade population of students in Long Branch Public School District.
To support this endeavor, student interns from the Educational Counseling program are placed at the Long Branch middle and high schools to provide counseling and support services in small groups and individual meetings. Topics focused on time management, study skills, and other college and career readiness subjects are discussed on a weekly basis.
Monmouth University is accredited under the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE) Standards through the CAEP Accreditation System.
