Get Real! Freshmen (now known as Foundations for Success) has been through 10 years of evolution with over 2,000 high school students to help teens transition more smoothly into high school and adulthood successfully. Everyone is looking for college and career readiness curriculum and teachers do not have the time to create from scratch. Get Real! meets the needs of support programs to help transition and was developed from the heart of a concerned mother/English teacher who left her students did not understand the WHY of their education, and as a widowed mother with her own children, with 3 distinct personalities and goals. These 'lessons' were designed to help ALL teens make the massive and life altering decisions about REAL life that follows high school. Get Real! is a semester of curriculum which takes students on a journey of self-discovery while teaching the vocabulary necessary to understand how high school differs from junior high or middle school. It also introduces the basics of college and career /vocabulary and choices with factual, current information. It also allows a peek into average salaries and cost of living, as well as some activities to open up perspective into what students want their futures to look like.
