Since Compass’ inception in 2001, we’ve had over 500 students from more than 30 states and 4 different countries participate in our program. And they’ve a lot to say about their experience with Compass! Here we’ve collected a handful of testimonials from our student participants, parents, and the people who recommended students for our program.
