The College Options Foundation is a not-for-profit 501 (c) (3) organization that is dedicated to enriching the academic development of high school students and assisting them in their preparation for higher education. Our emphasis lies with serving military families and students who participate in JROTC. To accomplish our mission we provide resources for college admissions and funding, utilize student planning guides, college exam study guides, admissions tutorials and personalized counseling, and conduct spirited academic competitions for JROTC students nationwide.

The Foundation’s academic competitions are designed to challenge and prepare high school students for college entrance exams using a fast-paced internet-based program designed by i.d.e.a.s. at Disney-MGM Studios. Students in JROTC programs may sign up to compete in the JROTC Academic Challenge which tests teams of 5 cadets on their knowledge of JROTC curriculum, high school math, and science and language arts.

The Foundation also serves as a resource for students who are interested in obtaining more information about higher education. Our award-winning software takes students and their parents through the process of preparing for college entrance exams, submitting applications, obtaining financial aid and getting ready for that first year of college.

Finally, the Foundation offers unique fundraising opportunities for groups such as JROTC units, service clubs, and special interest clubs – just about any group of high school students — to raise money for their activities. These programs do not require “start up” costs or time-consuming oversight by parents and provide funds for all of the organization’s activities.

We believe that it is vital that all students have access to the resources necessary to prepare them for the rigors of advanced education. The Foundation is currently working with over 2,000 high school programs, which include military installations and Department of Defense schools worldwide, to provide innovative educational assistance.
