The College Knowledge Project
Over the past two years, a team of organizations conducted student focus groups across the state to determine ways to support College Bound students in high school. Focus groups and surveys with over 800 primarily College Bound Scholarship students from urban, suburban and rural communities found that College Bound Scholarship and the steps to prepare for college are not well understood.
As a solution, the College Knowledge project emerged - 23 student tested and approved digital handouts that encompass 6 chapter topics: All About College & Career, Getting Ready, College Bound Scholarship, Paying for College, Applying for College, and Enrolling in College. Each handout tackles a specific subtopic and can be used flexibly as an additional student resource to compliment your programming. You can download individual pages, all 23 handouts as a comprehensive "handbook" for students, by chapter to provide a robust set of materials on a single topic, or download a specific grade level packet. Additionally, many of these handouts will also be appropriate for students in middle school. All digital handouts are available in the top 5 languages spoken at home by students: English, Russian, Somali, Spanish and Vietnamese.
Current as of academic year 2020-21
These packets come with a grade level specific month by month timeline and corresponding digital handouts.
This set of digital handouts are grouped together by chapter theme.
