College Compass engages high school students through four core services: workshops that deliver a road map of the college-admissions process, counseling for vital one-on-one admissions advice, ACT test preparation courses to maximize scoring potential, and college fairs and tours to explore campuses and identify a credible pool of potential schools. The powerful combination of these four core services empowers our students with the knowledge, credentials, and confidence to gain access to the college or university of their choice.
College Compass gets results. Last year 96% of our seniors were accepted to college with an average of $61,449 in financial support.

FAFSA workshop / financial aid & scholarship advising
College application workshop
