Programs: The Reach for College! program and books, that were specially developed for our target population of low-income students who will likely be the first in their families to pursue postsecondary education, cover all of the college access and college preparation tasks. These include:

-College selection and application
-Study skills and time-management
-College-level reading and essay-writing
-FAFSA/Financial aid and scholarship applications
-Employability and interview skills
-What to expect at college and how to successfully make the transition.
In schools, the program is offered as a class that the student takes as part of his or her regular daily schedule. It is taught by a teacher at the school who has been trained by Reach for College! Frequent on-site classroom assistance is provided by Reach for College! to assure excellent implementation of the program.
When community groups, such as churches, PTA's or other nonprofits want to use the Reach for College! curriculum and program, we tailor the program to meet their specific needs.
Reach for College! offers its books and program to most schools for free, as funding allows. We typically match funding with community groups and churches who want to use the program.
