College March

This video is about the College March, an EL Education tradition. On College March Day in December, seniors in EL Education public schools - where every single student is prepared for college success- march together to a local post office to mail in their college applications. This tradition inspires hope and pride in urban and rural communities, as the seniors show younger students and families a new vision of what is possible. The opening montage shows college marches from around the United States, and describes the tradition's roots in New York City Outward Bound schools. This video also features a case study of a 2016 College March at Harborside Academy in Kenosha, Wisconsin.
