Welcome to the CREED College Readiness Program!
The CREED COLLEGE READINESS PROGRAM helps young people reach their educational goals and attend the college of their choice.
The goals of CREED are to:
- Help students and their families make affordable and attainable college choices that match the student’s abilities and interests.
- Provide information and experienced advice to students and their parents to increase their potential for success.
- Work with students once they arrive on their respective campus to provide them support and guidance to ensure their persistence and subsequent graduation from their institutions.
CREED was founded in 2010 with the intent to help young people with their college decision making process. Our name, CREED, is symbolic of our motto: Believing in our Youth.
Our mission and vision statements, along with a brief history help illuminate our hopes for our program's participants. Click here to learn more about us.
"Thanks to all of you for your support over the past four years. As we enter our fifth year, we have focused our efforts on reading, readiness, retention and research. These specific foci are a result of an assessment of our past work and needs expressed by our participants. As always, we need your support to continue the work with our students. Your help is so appreciated and necessary; your contributions help us stay true to our mission and to our goal to keep our services to our students and families without costs. Though you will soon receive a fundraising appeal, consider making a donation now at creedonline.org/donate-to-creed", Terrence Mitchell, Executive Director.
