College Readiness Initiative (CRI)

Thousands of area high school juniors participate each year in Tri-County's College Readiness Initiative (CRI). The CRI allows high school juniors to get exposure to a college placement assessment, called COMPASS, produced by the ACT company.  COMPASS provides valuable information regarding readiness for college courses in English, mathematics, and other subjects.

After juniors at participating high schools take the assessment, they receive feedback from Tri-County representatives regarding their scores. Based upon the information given at these post-COMPASS workshops, students are able to develop post-secondary plans with more clarity regarding their readiness for college courses.

Some students do not have a plan to attend college prior to COMPASS testing, but then find their scores to be at the college level and become excited about the possibilities. Many students become motivated to improve their level of college readiness in order to avoid the cost and time of taking remedial courses in college. Regardless of whether students plan to attend Tri-County after graduation, participate in dual enrollment  during senior year, or to attend a 4-year college, COMPASS provides valuable information as students plan the remainder of their high school studies.

Preparation and practice in reading, grammar, and math are keys to success on the COMPASS.  Students should utilize the practice tests in ACT's website prior to testing in
