Summit Information

Reach Higher is a two-day Summit designed as a professional learning opportunity for education professionals who support students in their transition from high school to postsecondary education and/or career training. Effective transitional practices from Oregon and other parts of the nation are spotlighted throughout the Summit through keynote presentations and breakout sessions. 

Reach Higher has two goals:

1) Accelerate progress toward graduating 100% of our young people from high school to be ready for success in a postsecondary environment, such as a trade school or college, and ultimately a professional career. 

2) Ensure that every student, family, and community in Oregon is provided with the information and supports needed for a viable and affordable pathway to adult success. 


K-12 school counselors, teachers and administrators, college/university advisors, financial aid officers, community mentors,college access programs, and policy leaders from across Oregon.
