High School College Advisors


Our college advisors in your school

To help you transition smoothly into college, and to better serve our high school partner districts, CGCC has embedded our own College Advisors at our area high schools. These advisors are available on high school campuses to help students navigate the college admissions process, answer any questions they may have, and support their search for the right academic programs. Our College Advisors are also ambassadors to programs that encourage high school students to prepare for college early, including:

  • Dual Enrollment, which allows students to earn high school and college credits at the same time
  • Concurrent Enrollment, where high school students can take courses with college students, either in person, online, or in hybrid formats
  • Hoop of Learning, an early high school-to-college bridge program designed to empower American Indian students
  • Achieving a College Education (ACE), a scholarship program supporting first-generation, underrepresented, financially disadvantaged college-bound students
