We are high schoolers who constantly see our seniors and many other students stressing about getting into the college of their choice. Just like us, they all have a multitude of questions about the college application process, college culture, and much more. This made us think about how we can help our fellow students.
We came up with Leap2College, a free platform where high schoolers can get guidance from the current college students and recent college graduates who have gone through this journey and can share their life experiences and perspectives.
With Leap2College, we hope to build a community of mentors who can help high school students navigate through the challenging process of college admissions. We also want to build and provide a comprehensive, centralized library of resources which can benefit every high schooler. Ultimately, we want to bring high school peers together who can always count on each other and build an ecosystem of support and lifelong friendships.
