A Culture of College Readiness
Students are college-ready when they have the knowledge, skills, and behaviors to complete a college course of study successfully, without remediation
“Without preparation, opportunity is an empty promise.”
—Alan Page, Minnesota Supreme Court Justice
The journey that leads from pre-kindergarten to college success is shared by many groups: involved parents, committed teachers, principals and school district leadership, business communities, and elected officials.
The College Readiness Systems can help make that journey a successful one by supporting districts and schools in the use of resources that ensure a smooth transition from one grade to the next, and eventually from high school to college. Learn more about using the College Readiness Systems programs.
Equity & Access
Also supporting the College Readiness Systems focus on development of a college-ready culture in districts and schools is our Equity & Access group, which oversees and evaluates programs, conferences, and scholarships designed to help low-income and underserved student populations be prepared for college success.
The College Board Leadership Institute for Principals
Another initiative of the College Readiness Systems is the College Board Leadership Institute for Principals (CBLIP). This nine-month national leadership institute was designed to build the capacity of school leaders to develop and sustain their own skills and help them develop rigorous and nurturing school environments.
