The earlier students are exposed to the idea of college and nurtured to believe that they are capable of achieving success, the more likely it is that they will live up to those expectations, and feel prepared to achieve their goals. A big component to students’ success is access to resources and support systems in school. To be college and career ready means leaving the K-12 system with adequate education, without the need of remedial courses in postsecondary institutions. This briefing will bring together experts to discuss the importance of college and career awareness for students prior to high school.

The 2017 CHCI Capitol Hill Policy Briefing Series is the culmination of CHCI’s premier, nine-month Graduate Fellowship Program.
