Go2College Program

Our Go2College camps and after school programs have served 38 students so far from July 2017 through January 2018. Based on Go2College pre- and post- surveys students have made the following gains in their college aspirations and preparation knowledge:

  • Students increased their expectations for achieving a four year college degree;
  • Students now talk more often to their parents about the courses they need to take in high school to be college ready;
  • Students now talk more often to their parents about college and career interests;
  • Students increased their knowledge about financial resources to pay for college;
  • Students increased their knowledge about college and university options in Maryland;
  • Students listed more colleges of interest in the post survey than in the pre survey.
