Rec Center Programming
Presented by The City of Cleveland and College Now Greater Cleveland, Rec Center Programming is designed to educate students about college and career possibilities through exploration activities including college tours, post-secondary workshops, career technical workshops, financial guidance, and FAFSA assistance.
Cleveland Foundation College Now Scholars
The Cleveland Foundation College Now Scholars program is an initiative, funded by The Cleveland Foundation, which seeks to match the Cleveland Metropolitan School District’s highest-achieving students with their “best-fit” postsecondary option. An intrusive advising approach is employed, as a College Now advisor works with students one-on-one and in groups to determine a student’s academic, financial, social and environmental needs and find the higher education institutions that will meet those needs and set the students up for success on their campuses. Since beginning in 2011, the Cleveland Foundation College Now Scholars program has significantly increased not only the selectivity of schools students are enrolling in but also the amount of financial aid they are receiving to put toward their education.
