PROVIDING QUALITY EDUCATIONAL OPPORTUNITIES FOR FOSTER CARE STUDENTS
C/ FORWARD staff work with K-12 students on an individual basis to ensure they have access to the best educational opportunities by matching them with first-tier independent elementary and secondary schools. We guide them through the application process and work with them to get the most out of their high school experience, culminating with assistance in the completion of college applications, graduating from high school, and attending college.
All eight of our 2014 high school graduates transitioned into college; five of our students graduated from college this past year. Once in college, C/ FORWARD students receive continued support, from help setting up their dorm rooms to assistance navigating financial aid and purchasing textbooks and technology. We maintain our relationships with our students through college (undergraduate and graduate school) and into their careers.
