A completely new take on college readiness planning
Compass is a nine-month virtual program for college-aspiring high school students with visual impairment – designed to help them proactively explore and develop a plan for building the critical academic and blindness skills they need to reach their post-secondary goals.
The program engages current research on adolescent development and learning to create an innovative, powerful enrichment program to challenge and support students, families and educators.
Through group work and individual coaching for the student and their educational team – including their family members and TVIs – Compass works to fill the often-overlooked gaps in college and career preparation.
Compass meets the criteria for Pre-Employment Transition Services. Students who participate in the program may be eligible for funding through their state agency for the blind. Additional funding sources may include support from the student’s school district or private pay.
