    2023 College App Week Highlights

    Oklahoma’s College Application Week (CAW) 2023 was held September 25-29, and many schools opted to hold their CAW during a different week.
    We’d like to express a huge THANK YOU to everyone who gave their time and amazing efforts to make this CAW a success!

    Here are some highlights from CAW 2023:

    • 136 schools, libraries and tribal partners registered for the event.
    • Over 3,000 high school seniors participated in CAW events statewide and submitted over 5,000 college applications.
    • Applications were sent to colleges in 37 states and Washington, D.C.

    At the end of CAW, the 136 site coordinators were asked to submit an exit survey reporting the number of seniors who participated and the number of college applications submitted. They were also given the opportunity to share the various activities they used to engage their students and to make their CAW a success. Each school that submitted an exit survey will be considered as a nominee for the annual Oklahoma College Application Week School of Excellence Award.
    The first School of Excellence award winners were announced in the spring of 2020. So far, the winners for Oklahoma have been:

    • Edmond Memorial High School, 2019
    • Miami High School, 2020
    • Indianola High School, 2021
    • Booker T. Washington High School, Tulsa, 2022

      The American College Application Campaign (ACAC) will announce the winners of the School of Excellence award for all participating states sometime in March 2024.
