History

College Day is a community-wide college-going effort spearheaded by the volunteer-led First Generation College Attainment Coalition.  

Now in its fourth year, it inspires 250,000 Santa Clara County students to plan for their college success--especially those who will be the first in their family to go to college.

This year, College Day culminates in county-wide events on October 10, when students from preschool to high school take part in activities promoting the benefits of college.  

The 2nd annual College Day Family and Community Conference will be held at San Jose State University on November 1.  See the "Family Conference" tab for more details.
