The College Fit Project 

Do you know where you want to go to college? Do you know if that college has the major you’re looking for? Do you know if they have big or small classes? How many clubs are there?


All of these questions factor into the college you choose. You have to consider ALL of your needs when choosing a college, not just one, and you have to consider which are the most important to you before deciding.

The College “Fit” Project will help you determine the best college for you based on your needs culturally, socially, and academically.

Project Steps

The College “Fit” Project will have 3 steps: 

  1. What’s Important to Me: You will select your top 10 wants from the list that are most important to you when selecting your college pathway.

  2. College Match Tool: You will use the Detroit College Match website tool to identify a school list based on your academic credentials. 

  3. My Top Schools List: You will use the College Match List and identify the top 4 match, reach, and safety schools respectively (12 schools total) that have the support in place for the items identified as “Most Important to Me”. This requires some research into the school. If you are looking for a school with a certain major, you should visit the websites to make sure they have what you are looking for before adding them to your list. 





This project begins January 10, 2022 and ends May 1, 2022.


 Every two weeks, we will raffle off six $25 amazon gift card to students who submit their list!

The first 50 students to submit a video will automatically win a $50 amazon gift card!
