Building A College Going Culture

There are nine interrelated elements that together help schools build and strengthen a college-going culture.  The nine elements are: 

  • College Talk
  • Clear Expectations
  • Information and Resources
  • Comprehensive Counseling Model
  • Testing and Curriculum
  • Faculty Involvement
  • Family Involvement
  • College Partnerships
  • Articulation

In order to set goals for your individual campus you must first:

  • Inventory and assess present activities and challenges
  • Agree on a few (one or three) of the nine college-going elements to work on
  • Establish a few goals for the year under each college-going element
  • Develop an action implementation plan for each goal

Remember: start with doable goals and know who on your campus is trained to assist you with CCMR!
