Navigating college readiness planning for students with visual impairment: a Compass information session

Learn more about Compass, our virtual enrichment program for 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.

It’s a coordinated approach that connects students from all over the U.S. – as well as their family members and TVIs – not just for skill-building and future-planning, but also for networking, peer support and friendship.

And it’s making an impact – on the students, their families and their educators.
