Access launched its College Commitment Day event when the national movement began in 2016! Today Access College Commitment Day is a highly anticipated community event.

This high-energy, school-spirited celebration for high school seniors is an unforgettable tribute to their educational achievements, commemorating an exciting time in their lives–college acceptance and the filing of their FAFSA form to gain the funds needed to enroll in college!

College Commitment Day 2024

Tuesday, April 23, 2024

This high-energy, school-spirited celebration for high school seniors is an unforgettable tribute to their educational achievements, commemorating an exciting time in their lives–college acceptance and the filing of their FAFSA form to gain the funds needed to enroll in college!

Our seventh annual College Commitment Day will be held on April 23, 2024 at Chartway Arena at the Ted Constant Convocation Center!

Nearly 2,000 Southside and Northampton County high school seniors who received their college acceptances will be celebrated in a BIG way thanks to our 2024 Presenting Partner, Old Dominion University; Title Partner, PRA Group; and other generous college partners appearing below.

This year, we can’t WAIT to do it again!

Check out past news coverage of last year’s event on WVEC, WAVY, WTKR, The Virginian-Pilot and the Suffolk News Herald. The local news airings and publications made it possible for the entire community to join in the celebration and be inspired by Access students who declared their commitment to higher education.
