TCU College Advising Corps
The TCU College Advising Corps helps low-income, first-generation, and underrepresented students find their way to colleges that will serve them well. By providing well-trained, enthusiastic advisers to underserved high schools, the TCU College Advising Corps aims to increase college-going rates at partner high schools across the DFW Metroplex.
TCU College Advising Corps advisers are placed as full-time college advisers in local underserved high schools. Advisers work to foster a college-going culture within the schools they serve, which is one of the best predictors of whether students will pursue higher education. Advisers become part of the their school’s community. They collaborate with teachers and administrators to tie college-going into the life of a school, devise creative approaches to reach and connect with students, and most importantly, open the eyes of students and their families to the possibility of college. Equally important, advisers supplement, not replace, existing high school counseling staff, thereby reaching more students.
The TCU College Advising Corps serves over 43,000 high school students in 24 schools in the following districts: Arlington ISD, Birdville ISD, Crowley ISD, Fort Worth ISD, Irving ISD, Lake Worth ISD and White Settlement ISD.
