College Inquiry, CARA’s whole school model, works intensively with schools for 3-4 years helping them to build their post-secondary access infrastructure and culture. By the end of our partnership, schools have built the capacity to continue this work on their own.

College Inquiry embeds post-secondary exploration in students’ regularly scheduled day throughout their high school years. It provides:

  1. Targeted staff coaching and professional development on the post-secondary landscape and stumbling blocks for first-generation college students
  2. Support for college office best practices
  3. Sequenced 9th-12th grade field-tested curriculum for post-secondary exploration
