The Urban Assembly College Readiness Team works to ensure all Urban Assembly students have access to college or the post-secondary pathway of their choice. Each high school has a full-time college counselor supported by the UA College Readiness Team. To systematize and streamline parts of the college application process, Urban Assembly subsidizes Naviance for all high schools to track and submit applications. The Urban Assembly College Readiness Team provides ongoing coaching and professional development of school-based staff. We work to connect schools with colleges and programs that support our students to thrive after high school. The Urban Assembly College Readiness Team employs the following key service strategies:
- Develop the capacity of each school to provide comprehensive and effective college planning
- Leverage the strength of the network to provide opportunities to individual Urban Assembly schools
- Support Urban Assembly graduates after high school: Deliver targeted summer matriculation support to each Urban Assembly graduate through the Bridge to College Program.
