Collegiate Directions, Inc. (CDI) supports college readiness, access, and retention for DC area low income and first generation scholars. Starting in tenth grade, scholars are identified and mentored. 100% of CDI scholars are accepted into four-year colleges, where they receive consistent counselor check-ins and career support.
Last year, CDI joined with E.L. Haynes Public Charter School in an innovative partnership to develop a college office at the school. This partnership will provide CDI’s esteemed college counseling services to twenty-five Haynes students each year, and will facilitate professional development to the school’s staff.
Given the opportunity to team up with other college access providers, CDI joined Raise DC’s C3N network in the fall of 2013. Through C3N, CDI connected with the Flamboyan Foundation, a local leader in family engagement. Through the organizations’ collaboration, CDI will continue to advise the network on professional development for college access providers
