What is EAOP?
EAOP is a state-wide college preparatory program sponsored by the University of California. For over 30 years, EAOP has helped students prepare for college by creating a community of young scholars and offering college-preparatory advising and academic enrichment opportunities. EAOP at UC Berkeley currently serves approximately 3,000 students from San Francisco, Contra Costa and Alameda counties.
The mission of EAOP at UC Berkeley is to prepare students from under-resourced communities for admission to colleges and universities. Students who are enrolled at an EAOP Partner School and maintain a 2.8 GPA or higher in their college preparatory coursework are eligible to apply to the program. Priority is given to students from low-income families and/or students who will be the first in their family to go to college. In general, students are invited to apply during the spring of their 9th grade year.
We accomplish our mission by:
- Offering intensive academic enrichment opportunities including preparation for college entrance exam
- Providing timely college preparatory information and advising
- Creating workshops for parents to help them better support their students on their journey to college
What resources does EAOP provide?
Academic Enrichment For over 20 years, EAOP has offered the Pre-College Academy, an intensive 6-week program on the Berkeley campus that exposes high school students to rigorous coursework in advanced mathematics, college writing, and other academic subjects. EAOP also enrolls students in college-level courses at local community colleges and at UC Berkeley Summer Sessions.
Test Preparation The Saturday SAT Academy provides students with intensive coursework and practice on SAT Reasoning test-taking strategies.
Academic Advising EAOP provides regular monitoring of student academic performance that helps students stay on track for college. EAOP also creates an Individual Academic Plan for each student that maps which college preparatory (a-g) courses and college entrance exams students must complete in order to be college-ready.
College Information for Students & Families Through workshops offered at our Partner High Schools, UC Berkeley and local community colleges, EAOP provides information and resources for students, parents/guardians and family members on the social and financial benefits of a college degree, the pathways to higher education, and student financial aid.
Who is my EAOP Advisor?
Hello Students & Parents!
My name is Ms. Cruz, and I am your EAOP and DCAC (Destination College Advising Corps) College Advisor. I am very happy to be here at Tennyson this year, and to become part of the Lancer family. It is my goal to meet with as many of you Lancers as possible this year to inform you all of the endless options you have available after high school! In addition, I would like to meet as many of you parents as possible too, so that we can discuss the ways in which you can best support your students in their journeys to graduation and beyond. It will not be an easy journey but it definitely will be worth it. I look forward to meeting you and working together for a brighter future!
