College Day is a community-driven, county-wide celebration that shows students from diverse backgrounds that going to college is possible. Now in its ninth year, under Silicon Valley Education Foundation's (SVEF) leadership, College Day organizes activities and supplies targeted resources to promote college readiness for elementary, middle, and high school students. Over 160 schools across Santa Clara County participate, of which many of their students will be the first in their families to go to college. College Day motivates over 100,000 students to feel excited about their future and confident that they can go to college. School sites design their own week, drawing upon resources and workshops organized by College Day.

All College Day lesson plans are from UC Berkeley Center for Educational Partnerships.
