Alliance for College Readiness

ECC’s Alliance for College Readiness works closely with K-12 partners with the goal of increasing the number of students graduating from high school college-ready.  AY2014-15 efforts focused on the following interventions:

  • Continued advancements in curricular alignment between high schools and ECC
  • The Transition Academy
    •  Mentoring and college-readiness program whereby participating high school students work with a designated mentor and ECC faculty on self-efficacy, affective intelligence, and college knowledge
  • 4-year High School Math Course
    • Math course developed in collaboration withlocal district high schools and four-year university partners to create an applied math course to be offered to high school seniors who wouldn't have typically enrolled in a fourth year of math. ECC provides placement testing (pre- and post-) for evaluation, and provides general administrative and analytic support. Approximately 600 students involved in FY 2015.
  • The First Lecture
    • 300 high school juniors attended a lecture at the college and then completed a writing assignment that was jointly graded by high school & college faculty.
  • College & Career 101 for Parents of High School Students
    •  An annual program for parents to learn about how to help their students prepare for college & careers. Approx. 270 parents attended.
  • Data-sharing
    • Using the National Student Clearinghouse, we are able to collect & report regional college-going rates, persistence rates, and completion rates for all public high school graduates in our region. We can also look at these rates programmatically, helping our high schools build and expand programs that are working.
