California College Guidance Initiative

Improving college readiness to improve college success.

Housed at the Foundation for California Community Colleges, the California College Guidance Initiative (CCGI) works to ensure that all 6th-12th grade students in California have access to a systematic baseline of guidance and support as they plan, prepare, and pay for college.

CCGI partners with K-12 school districts to support students, counselors, parents, and community-based organizations with technological tools that help guide the college planning and preparation process.

CCGI additionally supports data sharing amongst educational segments to help smooth student’s school transition from K-12 to higher education.
