Central Plains Center for Services

The foundation of every state is the education of its youth.
~ Diogenes Laertius

Central Plains Center for Services believes that anyone, regardless of their background or financial means has the right to attend the college of their choice. It is through this belief that the Success Through Education program evolved.


The Success Through Education program is designed to encourage, assist and ensure academic success for youth that may believe that college is not an option for them. Through this program, an Education Specialist works one-on-one with participating youth to provide support, guidance and encouragement to help the youth realize that if they want it college can become a reality. Key components of this program include:

  • Development of an Education Plan
  • Academic Planning
  • Study Skills Development
  • Time Management
  • Career and Major Exploration

Financial Aid

Central Plains Center for Services staff understands that the cost of a higher education can create a large financial strain. For this reason the Success Through Education program includes resources to lighten the anxiety and stress of financial burdens, replacing obstacles with opportunity through:

  • Financial and Personal Counseling
  • Assistance locating suitable financial aid programs
  • Assistance locating and applying for grants, scholarships and if necessary, loans.

Central Plains Center for Services recognizes that students who plan and create their own education goals are more likely to obtain success, because of this belief the Success Through Education program is student driven, based on the strengths of the youth.
