ABOUT

Kids think about college far too late, school counselors are spread way too thin, and private counselors cost too much. There are 17,000 high schools in America that DO NOT have a dedicated college counselor. That's 2/3 of our entire public school system. In a knowledge economy where kids need a degree of some sort (college, vocational school, bootcamp, etc) in order to succeed, and where it's really complicated to figure out those pathways, it's completely insane that we are not getting this critical guidance to ALL STUDENTS.
