College Countdown Application Days are a great opportunity for school leaders to help students plan for life after high school. Students will be encouraged to apply to more than one school because research shows that increasing college applications from one to three increases the chance for college enrollment by 50%.
Application Day Goals
- Create an environment where students are empowered to research and plan their next steps after graduation and understand what education they will require.
- To provide support for every student within the school to apply to at least one post-secondary institution.
Join College Countdown Mississippi to receive access to the Application Day toolkit and an overview and instructions on utilizing the resources. For information on how to establish Application Days in your school, please reach out to State Coordinators, Kierstan Dufour or Brandi Lyndall.
