For 35 years, Mason’s Early Identification Program has been helping Northern Virginia middle and high school students prepare for their future college careers.
Monica Amaya, a senior at Manassas Park High School in Virginia, balances studies and a job at a restaurant. In the fall, Amaya will be attending George Mason University and has been accepted into the Honors College. She credits Mason’s Early Identification Program (EIP) for getting her ready for college.
“The program pushed me, motivated me, throughout high school so I could set an example for my younger siblings and show that it is possible for us to achieve our dreams,” says Amaya, who will be the first in her family to go to college. “We can do anything if we work hard.”
