WHO WE ARE

FOUNDER'S CORNER

The College Factory is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to the building of a college-going culture within the community We achieve our mission by providing college and career planning resources to youth and families. Our organization is volunteer ran with our members not only being guided through the college admissions process, but are also receiving information about other topics, such as interviewing, budgeting, community service, and other life management skills. 

We hear all the time "College isn't for everyone" and although that statement may hold some truth, the opportunity to advance one's life, whether through college or a career should be accessible to everyone. Our goal is to make this idea of a college education the norm in communities and households across the country.  


Why now? Because every year we wait to make a change, we are sending another group of students into the world unprepared for what it will bring on. 

Question of the Month - August 2017

Q: When should I take my SAT or ACT?


A: It is recommended that you take your SAT/ACT at least one time during your junior year of high school. This will allow you to gauge which exam you perform better on and also give you time to study so you can retest again your senior year, if needed. Remember to check with the colleges you are applying to and ask whether they super score. This means they will take your highest score from any of your SAT/ACT test administrations.
