Program Description

Launch Manistee is a local college access network with a cradle to career philosophy. We are aiming to increase both college access and college attainment for our students. Our visionary goal is to increase our county-wide college attainment rates to 60% in 2025 (the shared Goal 2025 vision). We facilitate and promote initiatives in the six county high schools such as college application week and financial aid/FAFSA completion events. We have also developed a scholarship clearinghouse for students and parents. Launch Manistee coordinates initiatives and facilitates college access work with 6 area high schools; we have an average graduation class of 200 county wide.
