Our nation’s future depends on our ability to ensure that all children are prepared to enter and succeed in college. Students from low-income communities face many barriers to higher education, among them the lack of
information. For these students, it’s never too early to communicate expectations about the importance of higher education, as Jamie Campisano does so imaginatively and effectively in this book.

In my work on national education policy, I have learned how critical it is that every young person has a college education as a goal. “C” is for College is must reading for every child, and every child’s parents and teachers.
Congressman John Yarmuth, U.S. Representative from Kentucky
Children need to see their future at a young age. “C” is for College creates a vision and a pathway to a better career and a better life. This book needs to be in every elementary school in America.
Dr. James Barker, Chair, Council of Basic Education, State Board of Education, Pa.;
Executive Director, Pa. Digital Learning Network;
and former Superintendent (17 yrs.) School District, City of Erie
“C” is for College meets a pervasive need that is threatening the welfare of our country. If we don’t find a way to move our children, especially those from low-income households, to and through college, the United States will become a third world nation. Kudos to Jamie Campisano for targeting our youngest students – that’s where we need to first deliver the message about college.
Rick Dalton, Ed.D. CEO & President, CFES: College For Every Student
Finally, a book that promotes college for everyone, regardless of socio-economic background, race or affiliation. “C” is for College offers the reader a fresh perspective on the need for entry into college and exit into a new world of opportunities. As an educator of 31 years, I highly recommend this book to all students, parents, and teachers. It will inspire students to truly understand the power of education and the belief that it is attainable to all. A must read for today’s students!
