- College Access for All – Middle School “College-U” Curriculum: Includes a 10-module interactive collection designed to engage seventh-grade students in early college awareness. In particular, see module 1 “Why College?” to help students measure what they already know about college and to debunk myths surrounding whether college is a viable option for all students.
- College Access for All – Middle School “Family-U” Curriculum: Includes eight, parent-facing modules to engage families in early college-awareness activities. In particular, see module 1 “Why is College Important To My Family?” to help families identify the various benefits of attending college.
