Compass, from the student perspective

Compass is making an impact on college-aspiring high school students who are blind and visually impaired.

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.

In this interactive information session, learn more about Compass from the perspective of students and families who have been through the program.

This session was the second in our three-part series, “College readiness for blind and visually impaired students – from resources to the real world.” For more college readiness content, check out the other two sessions: Introducing the College Readiness Resource Center and Compass, from the educator perspective.
