​​​​​​​​​​Closing The Achievement Gap (CTAG)​​ Camp

Student examines brain in the cadaver lab.Closing The Achievement Gap (CTAG) was developed as a statewide program to help underserved, diverse middle school and high school students achieve success in academics, college, and career exploration​. Just 35 miles south of the University of Findlay, Lima City Schools' CTAG program pairs students with community members who mentor, motivate, and help create a pathway to success. ​​


With the support of Nutrien in Lima, the University of Findlay has partnered with Lima City Schools to offer day and residential camps for the next three years. Findlay's goal is to help these students see that a meaningful life and productive career is something that is not only possible, but something the University is committed​ to helping them achieve. ​
