About Canyon State Academy
On September 8th, 2012, Dr. James Blasingame, Associate Professor at Arizona State University, and former Student-Athlete Michael Keller visited Canyon State Academy's AVID program.
AVID, Advancement Via Individual Determination, is a college readiness system that is designed to increase school wide learning and performance at Canyon State Academy.
The AVID College Readiness System (ACRS) accelerates student learning, uses research based methods of effective instruction, provides meaningful and motivational professional learning, and acts as a catalyst for systemic reform and change.
Dr. Blasingame spoke to the students about the benefits of college and shared information about the resources and people available to help you succeed. Michael Keller, who is currently attending ASU, extended his knowledge and experiences of post-secondary education to the current student-athletes. Along with brothers from his fraternity, Tau Psi Omega, Mr. Keller presented information regarding scholarships, grants, and loans available. With over 20 members of his fraternity present, students were able to ask questions concerning their curiosity of college life.
Additionally, Mr. Keller organized an activity using several decks of cards to emphasize the diversity in a college/university atmosphere. There were many tables set up to play the game and players were asked to move around after every round was completed. However, the players were unaware that each table had different rules to abide by, which consequently happened to cause debate over how the game was supposed to be played. This twist brought about a realization of people's differences and the ability to adapt in a new environment.
In addition to the camaraderie, the fraternity and students ate lunch together and further discussed any worries or concerns about life after high school.
The brothers of the Omega house shared their individual viewpoints and opinions on how to simultaneously manage schooling and other aspects of life. Afterwards, they gathered at the gymnasium for a friendly game of basketball.
Before saying goodbye, two Block-R students, the highest status a student can achieve at CSA, expressed their gratitude by thanking the Omega house for their friendly visit. The students of the AVID program are highly appreciative of the fact that Dr. Blasingame, Mr. Keller and his fraternity brothers were able to find time in their schedules to share wisdom and insight of post-secondary education. Canyon State and the AVID students look forward to collaborating with Tau Psi Omega in the future.
