New Visions needs funding to bring an online college access system to 6 schools in our network. 6to16 is an online college access system that starts in grade 6 or 9 and tracks students through college. 6to16 includes a college access curriculum and social networking that allows educators and peers to mentor students online, and to assist them in the college exploration process. There are also e-learning modules for each grade, which makes it easier for counselors and teachers to use the program.


Funding will go directly to support 6to16 training and implementation in 6 high schools with facilitation from the Urban Education Institute and New Visions.

Long-Term Impact

6to16 will help our schools begin college preparation early, and through a structured, school-wide approach. The end goal is success in college and career for all of our students.
