The College and Career Readiness and Success Center (CCRS Center) was launched October 1, 2012, under a five-year grant from the United States Department of Education to the American Institutes for Research. AIR along with our five lead partners—the American Youth Policy Forum, the College Board, Quill Research Associates, the National Association of State Directors of Career Technical Education Consortium, and the Forum for Youth Investment. The Center’s mission is to help states and other CCRS stakeholders better inform, align, and support efforts to ensure that all students are ready for success in college and careers.
This website houses new research-based products, tools, and professional development resources that were developed by the CCRS Center and our partners, and links to other vetted CCRS resources. It also contains additional resources co-developed with ED funds through the National High School Center. The CCRS Center builds off of the high school improvement resources developed by the National High School Center and expands them to encompass the PK-20 continuum and beyond. http://www.ccrscenter.org/
Young people in all socioeconomic groups have college aspirations. In fact, eight out of 10 expect to attain a bachelor's degree or higher, according to the U.S. Department of Education. But despite their aspirations, low-income students and those who are the first in their families to pursue higher education are severely underrepresented on college campuses. Studies show these students often lack the guidance they need to prepare for postsecondary education.
In order to turn these students' college dreams into action-oriented goals, the American Council on Education, Lumina Foundation and the Ad Council created the KnowHow2GO campaign. This multi-year, multi-media effort includes television, radio and outdoor public service advertisements (PSAs) that encourage young people, primarily those in 8th through 10th grade, to prepare for college using four simple steps. http://knowhow2go.acenet.edu/index.html
The National High School Center has served as a central source of information on high school improvement for the Regional Comprehensive Center network from 2005 until 2013. This technical assistance network supported state education agencies and the districts and schools they served as they worked to implement the goals of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA). This website contains all of the Center’s work on College and Career Readiness, Early Warning Systems (EWS), students with disabilities, English Language Learners, high school dropout, and other high school improvement topics. http://www.betterhighschools.org/CCR/overview.asp
