What our students have said…


“CLASP is a great program! I don’t know what I would have done without it this year. Whenever I needed someone to talk to, tutoring, mentoring, or help of any kind they were there for me. I love all the people associated with this program and have felt us come together like a family away from home. THANKS CLASP!” –Adrian Perez, CLASP Scholar 2007-08
