Guam – “Excellent. It’s the first time I’ve heard of this.”

Parent Evelyn Nededog was impressed with what she learned about the College Access Challenge Grant Program administered by Guam Community College last night. Nededog was one of nearly 60 middle and high school parents and students gathered in the GCC’s Multipurpose Auditorium to learn about the federally funded CACGP, which provides students and their parents with information and resources that turn postsecondary education into a reality for students that are often the first in their family to go to college.

CACGP offers free college-oriented services to middle and high school students.]

Free tutoring, life skills workshops, financial aid sessions, and a summer bridge program are just some of the services College Access offers. Last night’s orientation session brings to 1,336 the total number of middle and high school students that are taking advantage of the CACGP this school year in order to be able to attend college.
