Watch our founder, Cristy Clavijo-Kish, interview author Maria Carla about her inspiration for “Achieve the College Dream,” and all things college prep:

Students with few resources rarely apply to top colleges.

Even when they have the academic and extracurricular merits to be admitted to institutions like Harvard, Yale and Princeton, these students usually opt for less selective universities.

Many ignore that top colleges are actively seeking outstanding candidates regardless of their economic background. What’s more, a great number of colleges offers generous financial aid to make sure every student can afford to attend.

Maria Carla Chicuén’s new book, “Achieve the College Dream: You Don’t Need to be Rich to Attend a Top School” is the definitive resource to help high-achieving, low-income students access the best possible college.

The author draws from her extensive experience in education to provide advice on important aspects of the path to college such as pursuing a strong high school curriculum, preparing for standardized exams, complementing learning at school, developing leadership, and finding expert help and role models—all through affordable strategies.
