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


“To assure every qualified Newark High School graduate the opportunity to pursue higher education.”

To fulfill this mission, the following objectives inform A Call to College programs and services: 

  • to motivate and encourage students of Newark City Schools to graduate from high school and to pursue  education after high school;
  • to counsel and advise students of Newark City Schools and their families about sources of financial aid for college;
  • to provide Last Dollar Grants to qualified Newark High School graduates;
  • to increase awareness and understanding of the benefits of education beyond high school.

"A Call to College helped me tremendously with my college selection process and preparing for the ACT test. I attended meetings with my own personal advisor in which we talked about my college plans.  These meetings helped me make decisions about colleges and kept me focused on my long-term goals. I also utilized all the ACT help A Call to College offered.  This assistance truly helped me get the best score I possibly could when I took the test.”
