Fifth annual Operation College Launch is here!

Operation College Launch (OCL) is an annual series of programs designed to provide you with the information you need about your future beyond high school. We are currently in our fifth year and last year alone we successfully served over 500 students and parents in Charlotte. A variety of topics that take you from start to finish in the college process will be covered by our experienced presenters from Kaplan Test Prep, The Princeton ReviewCommunities in Schools, and the College Foundation of North Carolina. The following workshops include:

  • Practice exams with a follow-up session of how to improve your score
  • The difference between the types of college exams offerered
  • Learning about financial aid
  • Filling out your FAFSA forms with skilled volunteers
  • How to pay for it all by searching for scholarships, grants and loans

All OCL workshops are free and open to all. Teens, as well as parents and caregivers, are welcome to attend. To find a workshop near you, view the flyer here and share it with your friends:

Also, please register online as sessions fill up quickly!
