• Sponsored Webinar: Implement Programming & Leverage Community Resources to Help Students Build a Balanced College List

    We know that students who enroll in colleges that are a strong match and fit are more likely to graduate. How can you implement programming in your school and/or in partnership with community organizations to help students and families build a balanced college list? Hear from a state college application campaign, a school counselor and a community-based organization to learn effective practices to engaging students and families in this important process. Learn about both short-term and long-term strategies. Building a balanced college list is the first step for student success in the college application process. Focus on ways to help students begin the application process informed and empowered with a balanced list.
