Watch College Bound: The journey to college from Ritenour High School

In a small suburban school district just outside of St. Louis, a group of dedicated Ritenour High School students are busy juggling school, work and college preparation with the help of their college counselor, Julie Kampschroeder. College Bound features Ritenour students and families as they overcome economic hardships, culture and language barriers, fear and other obstacles to be accepted into top universities in the country. Their journey proves that anything is possible with hard work, long hours, and a college counselor who knows the secrets to breaking through a system of higher education that has historically favored upper class America.
