To and Through Program

Our To and Through program is the introduction to College Bound. Emphasizing a holistic approach, we support high school students through academic development, college counseling, mental health services, and career development. High school students begin the To and Through Program at the start of their sophomore year.

Students interested in joining To and Through are encouraged to submit an application during their freshman year of high school.

The application for the Class of 2027 College Bound cohort is live and will close April 25, 2024!

Eligibility Criteria

College Bound emphasizes support of first-generation students with demonstrated financial need. First-generation means that neither parent has obtained a bachelor’s degree. Financial need is determined by the state of Missouri poverty guidelines and takes into consideration household income and family size.

While we strive to serve this population of students, we understand that all students can benefit from the support of our program. Students who do not fit the initial eligibility criteria are still encouraged to apply, but admission priority will be given to students who are first-generation with demonstrated financial need.

Additionally, students must have at least a 2.5 GPA and have a willingness and motivation to pursue higher education. 

To and Thorough Application Process

Submit an Application and Unofficial Transcript

The first step of joining the To and Through program is to submit an application. The application includes identifying student information, college and career goals, and information about the student’s family and is completed by the student and legal guardian. Information gathered in the application allows us to learn more about the student and determine if College Bound is the best fit. The unofficial transcript can be requested from the high school counselor or registrar.

Complete the College Bound Interview

The next step in the application process is to complete the College Bound New Student Interview. The purpose of the interview is to learn more about the student, this will allow us to gain a better understanding of the support that the student needs while in the program. While the interview is student-focused, parents and legal guardians are encouraged to attend to learn more about the program.

Complete the To and Through Enrollment Packet

The Enrollment Packet is a major step in the admission process, as it grants College Bound permission to work with the student. The Enrollment Packet must be completed by the legal guardian and provides releases to the student’s academic data, guidance on emergency information, and is used to determine student eligibility through reporting of family income.

Admission Decision

Once the Enrollment Packet is received, the packet, interview notes, and application are reviewed by College Bound. Based on eligibility criteria, an admission decision will be made and communicated to the student and their family.
