The purpose of the College Bound Fellows (CBF) program is to help enhance college access and success through developing a college-going culture within the selected schools. DCAN is seeking middle and high schools with a strong commitment from the building principal, school counseling team, and dedicated college and career readiness staff to move the needle on college access and success metrics.
We are seeking to partner with middle and high schools that can commit to attend regular college access and success learning meetings, assemble a Postsecondary Advisory Council, assess their college-going culture and school counseling capacity, analyze disaggregated student outcomes data, and identify and improve a college access or success area of improvement. The ultimate goal is to increase baseline college enrollment, persistence, and graduation rates by at least 5% (if relevant) and ensure that every graduating student has a postsecondary plan.
