Our Team

College Bound’s success is the outcome of a true team effort.

Every member of our team takes responsibility for our students’ success and is committed to the core values that galvanize us toward our North Star Goals.

Leadership Team

Our leadership team, also known as the CB Cabinet, believes that their job is to facilitate the work for all of College Bound’s staff. They strive daily to make sure the staff has what they need, in order for students to have they need. They believe being both staff and student centered is fundamental to the organization’s success.

Staff

Our staff is committed to our students. They’re fun, dedicated, and help our students every step of the way. No significant learning occurs without a significant relationship. They are signed on for the long haul – they will check in, nag if needed and believe in our students fiercely, imperfections and all.
