Getting students to and through college.

Golf Tournament

Dear Friend & Supporter,

Let me begin by saying THANK YOU!!

On October 25, 2021; 60 people came together for our !st annual golf tournament. 24 local businesses and individuals sponsored the event, including Homestead Funding who was a Doctorate level sponsor. Another 12 businesses from across the region donated raffle items.

Together, your support helped Higher Edge raise more than $8400! All money that will go directly towards student programming. Together, your support helped foster a student’s dream of getting “to and through” college. Together, we did … and together we will continue to do.

Dear Higher Edge Community,

As we look toward the future and the start of the upcoming academic year; we are announcing that Higher Edge will continue working virtually. While it had been our hope to open the office to our students and conduct on campus visits; the safety of our students and staff remains at the forefront of our work. Our small community just presents too many moving parts – Students attend 7 different high schools and almost 20 different college/university campuses.

Of course; we continuously monitor guidelines set forth by the CDC, state of Connecticut and local cities/towns in which our offices are located. Reassessments will be made as necessary and any changes will be shared accordingly.

Finally, we miss you! The office has been quiet for the last 17 months. The energy from events and the buzz of students talking and laughing cannot be replaced over Zoom. However, the virtual programming our advisors created during the pandemic proved to have far reaching positive impacts.

We cannot wait until COVID is safely behind us so that we can once again fully focus on advising and get back together!

In Community,
The Higher Edge Team
