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 us by hosting your own event in your community!



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

Lifting Up the School Counselor Profession

Every year, Reach Higher celebrates the school counseling profession through our annual celebration and by lifting up school counselor stories during National School Counseling Week. Stay tuned for information on how you can participate on social media!

School Counselor Convenings

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

College Signing Day

Reach Higher will continue organizing thousands of College Signing Day events around the country this year. 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.

Beating the Odds

Reach Higher traditionally celebrates transitioning first-generation college students during the summer at our annual Beating the Odds Summit. Check out our YouTube series to see Beating the Odds in action!
