“To assure every qualified Newark City Schools graduate the opportunity to pursue higher education.”

CAN DO Access

CAN DO Access, an acronym for the innovative partnership between Central Ohio Technical College, A Call to College, Newark City Schools, Denison University and The Ohio State University at Newark launched in 2008. The leadership of each partnering organization signed a memorandum of understanding to collectively apply for and share the talents of three AmeriCorps*VISTA volunteers to support the start of PEAK. A sixth key supporter, Ohio Campus Compact, made this plan a reality by awarding each campus VISTA positions from 2009-2012.

While their students are attending Kids Tech U, family members will experience EXPLORE College programming. Last year almost 60% of the program registrants were Newark City School students.
