"Our students have found this guidebook essential to their college searches. It is easy to navigate and targets the information that's most important to them. There's no other resource that offers this kind and quality of information. 'Opportunity' is the perfect word; that's just what our students need!"
—Debbie Greenberg, College Bound St. Louis, St. Louis, MO

"I began using the College Access & Opportunity Guide with my upper division students, but very soon the other students were asking to see it. Since I had only one copy, I would have a waiting list to look at the book. It became the focus of our group meetings and soon the students started calling it 'the red college bible.' In the end, we decided to give all of our sophomores their own copy to set them on the right path to college."
——Linda Perez, Achieve/Gerson Bakar Foundation, San Francisco, CA
