Get Ready for College Day 2017!

Watch Katherine Smith Elementary celebrate College Day 2016.

The 7th annual College Day will be held on Friday, October 20, 2017. It will be an amazing day of college-focused activities for elementary, middle, and high school students in Santa Clara County.

Our goal is to create a college-going culture among the students, and to inspire and support first-generation students in their pursuit of a college education. Check out our College Day Facebook page to see photos and videos of some of the fun activities at local schools during College Day 2016!

“We inspire students to believe that they can go to college, that they can Reach Higher, that Si Se Puede!”

2016 Cash for College Campaign

The mission of the 2016 Cash for College Campaign is to help low-income and first-generation college-goers complete the application process so they can access financial aid for education and career/technical training beyond high school.

Students and families can attend FREE Cash for College workshops throughout San Jose/Silicon Valley to learn about financial aid options and get help completing their 2017-2018 financial aid applications. Bilingual assistance is available in Spanish and Vietnamese. For more information about workshop dates, visit: logo
