Collegiate Directions, Inc. (CDI) is a nonprofit organization that provides comprehensive college admission counseling, tutoring and test preparation, and ongoing guidance to low-income, first-generation-to-college students. Starting in their sophomore year, CDI works with students, called CDI Scholars, from partner high schools in Maryland and Washington, D.C. CDI stays with their Scholars through college, providing continuing assistance with curriculum planning and financial aid applications, to ensure that they graduate. In addition to this scholastic support, Scholars participate in a range of cultural and educational opportunities, from performing community service to attending concerts. CDI also offers tailored professional development to high school counselors and is currently working with E.L. Haynes Public Charter School to develop their college advising office.
