Carey and Andy McClure started Collegiate Crossings to help students from economically disadvantaged families and first-generation college attending students navigate the complex processes associated with attending post-secondary educational opportunities. Their team provides services that help students plan their coursework, find universities and other post-graduation opportunities, and find funding to pay for them.
Earlier this year Collegiate Crossings was the beneficiary of a grant from the Colorado Opportunity Scholarship Initiative (COSI) for $100,000 to use to provide their services to students from Erie, Frederick and Mead High Schools. Mead High will be able to select 50 applicants who meet the criteria for assistance (either economically disadvantaged or first-generation prospective college students, or both).
We are excited for this excellent organizations to begin working with Mead's students to help them find their way through the process of attending college or other training programs after graduating from Mead High School!
