ECMC - Realizing the College Dream

Realizing the College Dream

All students deserve to realize their full potential.


Realizing the College Dream

When you're a teacher, few things are more frustrating than watching bright students with endless potential rule out college because they think it's too expensive or a waste of time. Realizing the College Dream can help you reach those students and show them that college is one opportunity they can't afford to miss.

Realizing the College Dream helps educators increase college attendance among low-income, first-generation students with:

  • Hands-on activities and interactive workshops about planning and paying for college
  • Experiences that challenge students to see themselves in college
  • Eye-opening information about the economic value of college
