Each December, high school seniors across the country participate in the College March. Students march their way to a local post office or community mailbox to send off college applications, marking a major milestone in their progress as students and citizens.

Congrats to all  the seniors, families, and school communities who participated in this year’s march! As coverage of the 2016 College March continues to roll in, we’ll be adding new stories and photos here:

2016 College March | Origins & Info

The College March originated with the NYC Outward Bound Schools network which implements the EL Education model, and has since spread to schools across the country. This year, over 2,700 seniors from 35 schools in 12 cities will be marching as friends, family, and community members cheer them on from the sidelines and sidewalks.
