CA Next is Collegiate Academies’ initiative to increase college completion by:
providing one-on-one advising support for each of our alumni; establishing strong
and cooperative relationships with colleges and universities; implementing specialized
programs to foster student engagement; and employing data analytics to continuously
improve our strategies and support student outcomes.

Our 6 alumni advisors and our social worker work with students on:

  • Navigating Logistics: helps with all aspects of starting
    college. Our teams support alumni with registration,
    financial aid, housing arrangements, and beyond.
  • Building Self-Advocacy Skills: helps students use
    their voice to self-advocate for their financial aid, social
    integration, and academic needs.
  • Leveraging On-Campus Resources: by connecting
    students to on-campus resources such as academic supports,
    career counseling, internship opportunities, student affairs,
    and medical and mental health services.
  • Peer Mentorship: connects first-year alumni with existing
    alumni base to share advice and first-hand experiences to
    support college persistence.

Our team is in service to over 1,000 Collegiate Alumni and host 24 annual alumni events. We make more than 11,000 calls, texts, and meetings a year to
support our alums spread across 63 colleges nationwide.
