Blending the influence of an elected official with the grass roots support of local communities provides a powerful opportunity to increase the number of high school students going to college.
The goal of the “Close the Deal” program as a complementary link to Operation Preparation is to:
- Create a strong college-going culture in schools with low college-going rates
- Support high school counselors to more effectively assist students in college application and enrollment
- Engage the business and postsecondary communities by providing guidance and resources to assist students in establishing and meeting postsecondary goals.
