Student Communication and Engagement

Have you been matched with a student who isn’t responding? Has your scholar gone radio silent after you began working together? Is your student rescheduling all your meetings? We know from precedent that this unfortunately happens with a small number of our students each year, so we’ve created a few guides to help you out and clarify our expectations.


College Toolkit

The College Toolkit is our resource bank/archive documents, guides, and links on topics as wide ranging as how to build a balance college list, how to submit the FAFSA, scholarship lists, and more.

If you have resources you think should be added to the toolkit, we’d love to consider them!

College Ready Milestones

Please note that the milestone deadlines are suggested. If a deadline has passed, know that there is still time to submit the milestone forms. If your student has completed a milestone, please encourage them to mark it as completed on the College-Ready Milestones page. Each milestone has resources to help students navigate each step of the process.
