Do you ever need help with homework, but never know where to go? Trio is your answer. Modesto High has several tutoring programs, but Trio is one of of the most popular ones. Being apart of Trio isn’t just getting help with your homework. There is more to it. Your Trio advisor helps you stay on track in school, and assists with making plans for the future and further academic exploration through college.”

Benjamin Cimoli is the Junior and Senior program advisor for the trio educational talent search program and Francely Santos is the new Freshmen and Sophomore advisor. As an advisor, they have the responsibility of ensuring that the students are taking the appropriate classes for their individual career paths. They make sure students have the information they need to go to college through workshops and field trips to colleges. For seniors they make sure you apply to colleges and understand the process of financial aid.  Tutoring is three days a week on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday in room 7.

Corrina Hernandez, a junior,  has been apart of Trio for four years since 7th grade. Trio has positively impacted her life in numerous ways. She enjoys the field trips because they are  educational, and they allow her to explore various aspects of college life. She stated that, “Trio changed me as a person, and helped me focus more on my future. Before trio I found it impossible for me to attend college, but they really helped open up new doors for me. ”

Benjamin Cimoli says, ” I enjoy having students come in, whether or not it involves help with homework or to talk about college. I am here to help anyone who needs it.” Trio is a great program to get the help you need to get into college. The best part is that Trio takes you on trips, and provides food for the students at the informational workshops. Who doesn’t like free food?!
