Each year, College Summit honors our strongest high school partners at our annual College Summit Awards Luncheon.
Deloitte College-Going Culture Award
This award goes to the Partner School that exemplifies College Summit’s mission to foster college-going culture and increase college enrollment rates. The winner will display effective and creative use of their peer leaders, the College Summit class, the Navigator curriculum, CSNAV (our online system), school alumni and the community, and the data we supply. It will also hold relevant and highly-attended college-going events on campus. In selecting the winning school, an awards committee takes into the consideration the participation of each event which resulted in tangible outcomes and uniqueness. The winner of this award receives $5,000.

“You ask why do I feel College Summit is important in the work that I do in my school. Well I believe it plays an important role in the work that I do within my school because it helps us come together as a whole. It gives us a chance not only to help our self but a chance to help the people around us. College Summit plays as a support system for some of us, even though it is not a physical thing a lot of us turn to College Summit for support and motivation. College Summit is way more then a 4 day experience. It is a family, a family that some of us don’t have.”

“You wouldn’t think that four days and three nights would be long enough to change the course of one’s life…. But that is exactly what happens at the summer workshops! The young people come to the summer workshops not too sure what to expect and they return home believing in their future and their own ability in making it successful. They leave the college campuses aremed with renewed confidence, college lists, financial aid information, their personal statements and an extended family of fellow peer leaders, volunteers, workshop and College Summit staff who believe in them and their ability to make it to and be successful in college. Being a writing coach has truly been a privilege and I am grateful to the young people for allowing us into their lives.”
