You are invited to join us at the 8th Annual Collegiate Directions, Inc. Spring Benefit as we celebrate our accomplishments, honor our past, and look forward to an exciting 2018.

Throughout the year the CDI team works tirelessly to provide a successful pathway to college graduation for low-income, first-generation-to-college students who face unique economic and educational obstacles. Our Scholars Program gives these bright, motivated high school students the chance to create a life of opportunity through a unique, six-year, comprehensive support program from 11th grade through college graduation. Since 2005, 100% of CDI Scholars have been admitted to selective four-year colleges and universities. Most importantly, our Scholars have posted an incredible 97% college graduation rate, compared to the national average of 11% for their peers with similar demographic profiles.

The Spring Benefit, which also includes cocktails as well as a silent auction, promises to be a special, informative, and entertaining evening. All money raised will be used to help even more deserving Scholars reach their academic goals, graduate from college, and achieve what’s possible!
