College Bound AZ empowers low income youth through academic and personal development to achieve educational success.
Low income students are 30% less likely to go to college.
We move students through the six-step Critical Path to college method and provide 1-on-1 mentoring to ensure success.
- Through College Bound AZ, 90% of our students go on to college, and 75% stay in school.
- Our students have been accepted at Rochester Institute of Technology, Notre Dame, University of Iowa, Benedictine University, AZ State University, Upper Iowa University and more.
College Bound AZ students improve their academic performance, learn leadership and life skills and participate in community service
In 2015, CBAZ was invited to participate in the Mesa “Street Piano” project. Students from our Junior High and High School Academies worked together to develop a theme for their piano related to education, collaborated with a local artist on the design and created an outstanding exhibit that was on public display at the Mesa Arts Center.
Antonia and Amy are participating in one of CBAZ’s annual community service event. Students picked citrus and delivered 2,000 pounds of fritut to a local food bank.
