28th edition: Step Up to College Guide

Posted by Philadelphia Futures on October 30, 2017

Philadelphia Futures’ Step Up to College Guide is the premier college guidance resource for Philadelphia’s high school students and their families, guidance counselors, teachers and youth-serving professionals.

Step Up to College resources are now available in the original print edition, on video, through social media and a free mobile app, which is available for download via the iPhone App Store and Google Play.

The Step Up to College Guide provides Philadelphia high school students, families and youth-serving professionals with a wide range of critical college information and resources – from understanding college admission options, to writing application essays, from conquering the FAFSA to making the right college “fit” decision. This year, 42,000 copies of Step Up to College will be distributed to public, public charter and parochial high school in Philadelphia, the Free Library of Philadelphia, government offices and community-based organizations. The Guide is available without cost to eliminate any barriers to access.

Features of the 28th edition of Step Up to College include:

  • robust, up-to-date resources and information on the college-going process;
  • reflections from recent high school graduates on what made their college choice the right “fit”;
  • easy-to-follow, grade-specific checklists and hands-on activities; and
  • the free Step Up to College mobile app.
