Formerly, as senior project manager at JFF, Cecilia Le developed publications and products that captured the key approaches behind Early College Designs that connect young people to postsecondary success. These designs include early colleges that blend high school and college coursework in an accelerated program for students underrepresented in higher education, as well as Back on Track models that put off-track and out-of school youth on paths to college and career. Before coming to JFF, Ms. Le was a Thomas B. Fordham Foundation fellow at Education Sector in Washington, DC. She has also helped prepare Boston students for college through an intensive tutoring program at MATCH Charter Public High School. She spent four years as an education reporter for newspapers in upstate New York and Wilmington, Delaware. Ms. Le earned her Bachelor’s degree in English and history from the University of Rochester.
