High school

The Northfield High School TORCH program is a collaboration among members of the school district, and community members, to address the issues of the achievement gap between Latino students and white students in the Northfield School District.  Because of our success, our programs are now available to all traditionally under-served students.  We offer tutoring and mentoring programs, as well as ACT preparation.  We also facilitate college visits and experience.  Among our many programs, we offer a PSEO program that allows students to obtain college credit for free.  As our program evolves, we partner with community members to meet the changing needs of out students.
TORCH parters with Riverland Community College and Carleton College to make PSEO online dual enrollment opportunities available to TORCH juniors and seniors.  Student meet once a week with a Carleton student who serves as a resource and mentor.  Students earn free college credit and are exposed to college level expectations and demands.
Income eligible student enrolled in the Youth IDA program have the opportunity to earn a  3:1 math for money they save for college.  Students can save up to $960, and will end up with $3,840 for college through matches from the state and local government.
Community Service
Students are given many opportunities to build their resumes through community service projects such as volunteering at Christmas Sharing, Thursday’s Table, or as a mentor at Summer PLUS.

  1. Good Morning,

    My name is Susan Livingston and I am a student currently working for SchoolSoup.com on an internship.

    I see that you are linking to scholarships.com as a point of reference for scholarship information on http://northfieldtorch.org/students/high-school-2/.

    Would it be possible for you to also include http://www.schoolsoup.com/ as another reference on your page?
    SchoolSoup has additional scholarship information that your users may find resourceful and I would appreciate it if there was any way I can get you to add us as well.

    If you would like to discuss further, or if I need to answer any questions for you, please contact me and I will do my best to answer any questions.

    Thank you for your time and please let me know if there is anything I can do to assist.

    Susan Livingston
