Philadelphia Futures has released its 28th edition of Step Up to College: Philadelphia’s Guide to the College Preparation, Application, Admissions & Financial Aid Processes – a 68-page publication designed to shepherd high school students and their college support teams through each stage of the college admissions and financial aid processes.
Beginning in late September, Philadelphia Futures began the distribution of 42,000 print copies of Step Up to College to every public, public charter and parochial high school in Philadelphia, the Free Library of Philadelphia, government offices and community-based organizations. Step Up to College is available without cost to eliminate any barriers to access.
Features of the 2017-2018 Guide include:
- Robust, up-to-date resources and information on the college-going process.
- Reflections from recent high school graduates on what made their college choice the right "fit."
- Easy-to-follow, grade-specific checklists and hands-on activities.
- The free Step Up to College mobile app.
