College Exploration at GCCP

In the 2011-2012 school year, our student body of 597 students, from freshmen to seniors, visited a total of 149 schools for college exploration.

Of those schools, 80 were urban, 44 were suburban, and 25 were rural.

Our students visit colleges near and far, spanning the country across a radius of 3,094 miles from University of San Francisco, CA all the way to Dartmouth University, NH.

82% of those visits were at the most selective colleges in the nation.
