In response to community needs expressed by youth in Chester and Lancaster Counties, we are pleased to announce that the College Advising Corps (CAC) model will be implemented in Lancaster and Chester Counties through a partnership between the J. Marion Sims Foundation, Furman University, The Duke Endowment, the College Advising Corps, Chester County Schools, Lancaster County Schools, and the University of South Carolina Lancaster beginning in August 2017.

 

Founded in 2005 and currently operating in 15 states with 22 higher education partners, CAC helps high school students navigate the complex college search, admission, and financial aid processes. The CAC model places recent college graduates into high schools to help guidance counselors support high school students as they prepare for post-secondary education. Funding partners have worked to secure a $2.2 million investment in our community to help youth transition successfully into post-secondary success.
