See the future now... explore the college experience with your scholar.In Partnership With College Now of Greater Cleveland, the Cleveland Metropolitan School District offers FREE college tours for families.
Parent University College Bus tours are an opportunity for families to experience college with their scholars. During the visits, families meet with admission representatives, take a walking tour of the campus, have free lunch provided by CMSD in the campus dining hall, and speak with current students.
These trips allow families an opportunity to understand how to prepare their scholars for Post-Secondary education and success. This includes applying for financial aid through FAFSA, the college admission process, SAY YES Scholarships and mentors, career tech, armed forces and civil service options, and supports available to scholars which ensure that they graduate from high school, career and college ready, and poised to succeed as global citizens.
Students who attend will receive a field trip notice, which will be shared with the school so that they are "excused" for the day. The trip will not negatively impact their attendance.
Parent or caregiver/family member (21 years old or above) attendance is required.
(CMSD scholars, grades 8-12)
Due to COVID-19 Pandemic, college tours for Fall, 2020 have been suspended.
We hope to resume tours in the Spring of 2021.
