Serving local students for higher education agency
ECA is a college access program that educates rural middle and high school students about higher education to help them find opportunities in their interests and to prepare for their future.
We operate under the David M. Einhorn Center for Community Engagement!
"We are comitted to serving disadvantaged and underserved students by providing greater agency to higher education by informing grade school students about the different aspects of attending and applying to college."
ECA partners with Ithaca High School (IHS) to serve its 10th grade students as part of their Advancement Via Individual Determination (AVID) program. ECA also partners with Spencer-Van Etten Middle School (SVE) and Waverly Middle School.
ECA holds a variety of targeted information sessions and activities at our partner schools throughout the school year, and at the end of the year, we reward our students with a Cornell campus tour for all their hard work!
