College Outreach USA’s mission is to identify students who are minority, from an inner city, and/or from a low income family during their early years in high school and connect them to college admissions advisors for the purpose of mentoring, preparing and admitting these students.
Our objectives as we work with MIL high school students:
Our Ongoing Objectives as an Organization:
Our online magazine is where MIL students can view college articles, as well as follow direct links to college websites, their academics, campus activities, their admissions process, online tours, financial aid, student activities, college newspaper, AND MUCH MORE!
Problems to be Addressed:
MIL students continue to be under-represented in four-year colleges and universities. The reasons for this include:
Goals and Objectives:
Our goal is to dramatically increase the numbers of MIL students applying to and enrolling in USA four-year colleges and universities.
MIL students who do not consider college a possibility discover that they CAN attend college. MIL students who already plan to attend college will be empowered by knowing HOW to prepare and apply.
College Outreach USA Major Activities
College Information In-Person Seminars:
The most effective way we reach out to MIL students is by conducting in-person seminars which are geared specifically toward MIL students their parents and their mentors. Representatives from our member colleges serve as the experts who present information, answer questions, and provide their personal insight on college admissions.
College Outreach USA MIL students are handpicked by academics in your high school. We call our students: USA HIGH SCHOOL SCHOLARS.
College Information Webinars:
College Outreach USA has run three live webinars using our staff and the staff of our member colleges as hosts/presenters to small groups of up to 100 MIL students. Each hour-long webinar began with a short presentation, and then gave the attendees a chance to have their questions answered live, from the source, in the moment. Future webinar topics will include writing the college essay, how to choose the right major, private colleges vs. public colleges, etc.
Virtual High School Visits:
In our virtual high school visits, the college uses a multi-media presentation and a live member of its staff to talk with and answer attendee’s questions about their college, in real time. This makes it possible for our colleges to have a presence at high schools they don’t have the travel budget to visit in person.
College Outreach USA Mentor Program:
Selected high school counselors, honor students from designated high schools in affluent areas, and honor students from each of our colleges will be part of our community service program to help mentor our MIL students. Please click the Mentor Program button below for additional information.
Plan for Measuring Project Results:
MIL students who attend seminars are asked to complete a registration form. College Outreach USA staff, as well as our colleges’ staff, follow-up via email.
The college educated MIL students will ultimately benefit their respective communities, as they return home as role models for others to emulate.
What Makes College Outreach USA Unique
Our uniqueness comes from the fact that our college information in-person seminars, webinars, and virtual high school visits are conducted by our Deans and Directors of Admission, their staff members, alumni from your college, as well as high school and independent guidance counselors aligned with College Outreach USA. Each in-person seminar, webinar and virtual high school visit is conducted by a college staff member and run by College Outreach USA staff and/or our Board Chair and Founder, Anthony F. Capraro III, Ph.D.
