Student Voice: The Importance of School-based College Preparation Supports

Wednesday, October 18, 2023
12:00 PM - 1:00 PM (EDT)

Event Details

New research from ACT highlights the importance of school-based college preparation supports for students. College-bound students from the class of 2023 were recently surveyed to understand their self-reported preparedness for college in four areas: academic, social, personal and financial preparedness. ACT identified factors important to students’ self-reported factors and gathered information from students to understand what college preparation supports they wish their school had provided to help them better prepare for college. Learn what recent high school graduates are saying about college preparedness and insights into ways schools can better help college-bound students prepare for their transition from high school to college.
