We're in business to improve the lives of ALL students.
There is a real crisis in the US! Across the United States, less than 10% of students from low-income families earn college degrees. Nationwide, of every 100 students who start high school only 23 earn a college degree within five years of their high school graduation. 1 in every 5 schools does not have a counselor in their school, and in schools that do have counselors, there is, on average, a 482 to 1 student to counselor ratio.
CR SCORE’s mission is to demystify and democratize the college admissions process for ALL students. To us, that means no matter who you are or where you live, you should have equal access to expert college readiness counseling. Every CR SCORE subscription enables us to empower underserved students to create positive change in their lives and their communities.
