College Summit has deep roots in Colorado due to J.B. Schramm, Founder and CEO, being a Denver native and East High School graduate. College Summit has been serving students in Colorado since 1996, primarily in the Metro Denver area.
Several key funders including Daniels Fund, The Denver Foundation, Donnell-Kay Foundation, ECA Foundation, Piton Foundation and Rose Community Foundation began to invest in College Summit. With their generous support, a regional office was opened in 2001.
In 2013-14, College Summit-Colorado is working with schools to build a stronger college-going culture and helping launch 1,835 students to college and career success. Current school partners include: Abraham Lincoln High, Bruce Randolph High, Colorado High School Charter, Escuela Tlatelolco, Manual High School, Martin Luther King (MLK) Jr. Early College, Montbello High School, Sheridan High School and Gateway High School.
Strong evidence exists that a college-going culture shift is taking place within partner schools:
