2018 College Challenge

2018 College Challenge schools compete to earn points and prizes by engaging ALL students

The Get Schooled College Challenge is a friendly competition between high schools across the country to improve college-readiness skills and FAFSA completion rates. Schools compete to earn points and prizes by engaging ALL students (freshmen through seniors) in online college-readiness activities and by having seniors complete their FAFSA. Schools can earn up to a $2,000 grant by getting students to log on to Getschooled.com and complete the respective badge. Students will also have the opportunity to earn individual prizes the more they engage on GetSchooled.com
