The Tomorrow Project is transforming public school education in San Joaquin County.
A centerpiece of University of the Pacific President Pamela A. Eibeck's Beyond Our Gates initiative, The Tomorrow Project increases the college readiness of K - 12 students so that they can successfully compete in higher education. In a larger sense, The Tomorrow Project contributes to our region's social, economic and civic growth.
"The Tomorrow Project Academies provide a rich learning environment that promotes self-confidence, discipline and critical thinking in some of Stockton's most disadvantaged youth, the very children who are our community's future." - University of the Pacific President Pamela A. Eibeck
Pacific, in collaboration with local schools, governmental agencies and nonprofit groups, has launched three new Tomorrow Project Academies, including the foundational Prep - USA Reach for the Stars, which focuses on science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM), and Harmony Stockton, an innovative music academy. The University has also brought five existing academic programs under The Tomorrow Project umbrella. Pacific and its partners eventually hope to operate 10 such academies.
Overarching goals by 2015 include:
- Increasing the number of graduating high school seniors in San Joaquin County, and especially in Stockton, who meet California's four-year college academic admission requirements
- Increasing the number of local youth attending University of the Pacific and other universities by at least 10 percent
Together, we can shape the future of public school education in San Joaquin County in important, meaningful ways.
