Welcome to the Choose College Educational Foundation's home page and blog. As the Executive Director of CCEF, it is my job to work myself out of a job. To that end, CCEF wishes to make college a reality in all communities, schools and households. We want the "You can go to college" message to be broadcasted throughout communities on billboards, TV, radio, and the web. We want to create a college-going society where high school graduation is no longer seen as the pivotal point of a student's academic career but as a minor stepping stone to their ultimate academic, career, and life potential.
Through the CCEF website, it is our pleasure to provide tools, resources, and support for families as they maneuver through the complicated waters of the school and college systems. It is our pleasure to provide information and resources to educators and community members in their quest to assist youth in finding a pathway to success. Come to the site regularly to obtain updated information on the college going process, educational issues, and more. Take time to explore the site and give your feedback.
If you have college or academic resources to share or a question/topic you would like to submit for the CCEF blog, please . I look forward to working with you to create a college-going society where educational success is a reality for all communities.
