Cielo wants to ensure all marginalized NYC students can realize their college dreams — not just a lucky few with top test scores or leadership roles. Cielo is building an online resource called Road to Uni that will act as a supercharged, hyper-accessible college advisor, open to all and offering a gamified roadmap with quick informational videos, live support, and actionable resources to navigate the overwhelming college admissions process.
