In this paper, we [Matthew Gaertner, David Conley, and Paul Stoltz] attempt to clarify the readiness landscape.

Much of our work is based on the Four Keys to College and Career Readiness model, developed by our founder, Dr. David Conley, and EPIC staff. It incorporates over a decade of research on what it takes to succeed in college and career. Download a student-friendly poster that explains what it takes to be college and career ready.
