Breadth and Depth for College Access - A Holistic, Student-Centered, and Relationship-Driven Approach to College Counseling

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Gateway High School succeeds in supporting 95% of its graduating students annually in matriculating to higher education.  This rate is a result of a unique and intensive approach to college access where all students are required to take two semesters of a College Counseling course - first in the spring of their 11th grade and then again in the fall of their 12th grade.  In this session, Director of College Counseling Joel Rangel and his colleague Jenna Marx will highlight the philosophy, values, approaches and activities that inform our College Counseling curriculum, with the goal of providing tools that educators can use and adapt to their own environments and programming.
