College Knowledge for Counselors

College Knowledge for Counselors is a professional development conference designed to provide counselors, administrators, and other educators with innovative ideas of creating a college-going culture in Arizona's middle and high schools.  This conference showcases a host of subject areas with experts who are prepared to discuss the barriers students face as well as the way in which we, as an academic community, can utilize the time and resources already available to prepare all youth for a bright future.
