Dear Montclair Community,
Would you consider helping our Montclair High School seniors with some upfront college expenses this fall? We’re launching “The Adopt A Mountie” college dorm package program.
The Class of 2022 had a particularly rough high school experience. From collapsed staircases to COVID, this class’ four years at Montclair High School lacked a normal school year. And as you know, preparing for college can be stressful in general and certainly financially.
Once the family goes through the college application process and acceptance letters, they now have to navigate the logistics of sending their children off to college. Many families have exhausted their finances with end-of-year high school expenses and additional college, including tuition, which leaves little or no resources to help their child(ren) with the basic necessities needed for a dorm room.
We are launching this program to help MHS seniors who may not have the means, to be able to obtain some fundamental items to outfit their dorms, like sheets and towels.
It takes a village to raise a Mountie! We need to show our young people that they matter, that their commitments to higher education matter and that when they do the work, the village will have their backs.
High School seniors will have the chance to complete the application process and turn it in by a specified time in order to be eligible for a Dorm Kit.
