Improving College Readiness to Improve College Success

Housed at the Foundation for California Community Colleges, the California College Guidance Initiative (CCGI) works to ensure that all 6th-12th grade students in California have access to a systematic baseline of guidance and support as they plan, prepare, and pay for college.

CCGI partners with K-12 school districts to support students, counselors, parents, and community-based organizations with technological tools that help guide the college planning and preparation process.
