To attend college, one must consider finances. Financial literacy regarding options for funding college is a vital skill for aspiring learners planning to attend a university/college after high school. Region One ESC offers services to students to ensure they and their parents achieve the financial literacy necessary for them to pursue their post-secondary educations.
The Center for Excellence in College and Career Readiness Support offers a comprehensive range of valuable services to non-GEAR UP students and their parents. The State of Economic Education: Making the Case for College and Career Readiness report prepared by Region One ESC lists and describes services which emerged from our experiences with GEAR UP program students, parents, and partners. Contact us if you have questions about how to reserve spaces for your students at our next large event!
