Upcoming & Past

We believe that celebrating students and students’ success is critical. That’s why Reach Higher works with students, counselors, schools, colleges, and communities around the country to showcase what’s working in their communities as students navigate the path to and through college. We hope you can join the movement by hosting your own event in your community!


Join the movement! Here are some ways for you to get involved:

School Counselor of the Year

Reach Higher will help celebrate the 2019 School Counselor of the Year in Washington, DC on February 1st, alongside the American School Counselor Association. Stay tuned for how you can participate online and in person!

Counselor Convenings

Reach Higher works with partnership organizations around the country to host professional development workshops that support school counselors. Stay tuned for more information about 2019 host locations.

College Signing Day

Reach Higher will continue organizing thousands of College Signing Day events around the country in 2019. While May 1st is the traditional deadline for high school seniors to let colleges know where they plan to attend, we know that communities will celebrate College Signing Day between late April and early June. Stay tuned for more information, including an updated 2019 toolkit, and webinars. You can register your event by signing up below.

Beating the Odds

Reach Higher traditionally celebrates transitioning first-gen college students during the summer before their first year of college. In 2019, Reach Higher is looking to partner with host nonprofits and colleges, to ensure that these students have the tools they need to succeed from day one. Stay tuned for toolkit to come!
