Host High School Partnership Expectations

MCAN is seeking responses from high school leadership (administrators and school counselors) who are committed to supporting a dedicated, full-time, college adviser and dramatically raising their college-going rates through a systematic team approach. Interested high schools are asked to complete this application online, provide several assurances and attach a minimum of three letters of support (described below). By completing the application, high schools commit to participating in the program for a minimum of three academic years and providing the required cost share. The funding expectation will increase over the first three years of the program.


Annual Cost Share Requirement 

  • Year 1 High Schools: $9,000 
  • Year 2 High Schools: $12,000
  • Year 3 and Beyond High Schools: $15,000


Host High School Application Process

The host high school application process is now closed but will re-open in fall 2020.


Award Process

High schools are selected through a competitive selection process. Final decisions regarding selection are based on information provided in the application, the school buy-in as demonstrated by the letters of support provided, and the level of need communicated in the proposal.
