Why Host a College Application Event: Insights from ACAC 2021 Schools of Excellence
Each year, the American College Application Campaign (ACAC) works with every state and the District of Columbia to host college application events in high schools and community organizations. The events encourage students to apply to college. This past school year, 19 high schools were selected as ACAC Schools of Excellence for their demonstrated commitment to student success and for serving as an exemplary model for their state’s application campaign.
ACAC support enables state leaders, school staff, and community members to provide students with individualized support and assistance as they prepare for and complete the college application process. Three School of Excellence award recipients will share the strategies they deployed during the 2021-22 application season to ensure they reached students who needed support navigating the complex college application and admissions process.
