Montgomery Community Media recently profiled a Bethesda nonprofit that helps kids navigate the complicated path to college or college scholarships.
Collegiate Directions Inc. helps students from their junior year in high school through college graduation, first with gaining admission to colleges and also with managing the transition to campus life.
Some of the group’s students may not have had the guidance otherwise. Many are the first in their families seeking a college degree. College Directions Inc. helps them wade through the rigorous standardized testing process, apply for schools and scholarships and continues with academic tutoring and support during their college careers.
