Acing College offers assistance to high school seniors who are on-track to graduate but need assistance navigating the college admission process. The program provides assistance with the admissions application, placement tests, financial aid, advising and online registration. Acing College will also be able to provide financial assistance for many students who can’t otherwise afford the testing fees. This year, the program will offer peer mentoring for all students during their fall and winter quarters via on-site resource tables at several Edmonds School District high schools.
College Access Corps
The College Access Corps is an AmeriCorps program that places an AmeriCorps member on college campuses to recruit and train coaches to implement college access activities to economically disadvantaged K-12 youth. The program gives an AmeriCorps member the opportunity to make a lasting change in the lives of youth while developing professional work skills. Thanks to the Edmonds Foundation, Edmonds CC will be able to host one AmeriCorps member this year that will work with 11th and 12th grade students at Lynnwood High School and Mariner High School.

Convergence Writers Series
The Convergence Writers Series (CWS) is a program designed to bring the Edmonds CC community together with writers from the region. It's an opportunity to connect through a shared experience of literature. CWS invites writers, poets, and journalists to come to the college, read from their work, and deliver talks--and to share how writing can be a career and a passion. CWS is the venue where students—once a quarter, in fall, winter, and spring—can meet these writers, hear their work, and become part of the conversation during the Q & A session.
Expanding Your Horizons
Expanding Your Horizons (EYH) is a national conference that encourages girls, grades 8-12, to explore careers in science, technology, engineering, and math.

Expanding Your Horizons will: increase young women's interest in science, technology, engineering, and math; foster awareness of career opportunities in these fields; as well as provide opportunities for young women to meet and interact with role models active in STEM fields.
