"Our partnership with College Visions was incredibly valuable in the set-up and development of the College and Career department at Blackstone Valley Prep High School. Overall, I am better equipped in my role and the high school is better equipped to have the scholars ready for college because of CV!"
David, College & Career Advisor
Blackstone Valley Prep
The CV Lab leverages College Visions’ expertise to train educators to practice effective college access strategies and guide first-gen students on the path to a college degree.
The CV Lab produces a powerful ripple effect, enabling CV’s model to reach thousands of first-gen youth across Rhode Island and beyond. In 2014-15 alone, College Visions trained more than 50 educators from organizations across Southern New England. The Lab provides support on topics including:
- Identification of match colleges for low-income, first-generation students
- Admissions advocacy and building relationships with colleges
- FAFSA completion and affordability
- Proactive advising for college success
