Black College Tour List 2014 (see note)

Management at Black Excel has decided to not print a Black College Tour list
this year. Weather/airline concerns have impacted on recruitment issues in
many cases. Please review old listings at this site to contact/inquire about
the availability of scheduled tours. As you will see a majority of tours are annual
events, and you can easily check with tour directors/websites for updates. Good luck. --Isaac Black, Founder, 2014.

What Is BLACK EXCEL?

Since its founding in 1988, BLACK EXCEL has helped young people and their parents all across the country to navigate the difficult college admission process. We have tried to make the way easy and accessible. As a result, we are happy to say that we have helped hundreds of African Americans get into college who might otherwise not have done so.

Students we have counseled have gained entry to over a hundred different colleges.  Here's a gateway to (New) U.S. States Colleges and Universities and (New)Historically Black Colleges. Our "accept"  lists comprise an honor roll  of schools, touching every level of excellence and entrance difficulty. Whether a student was looking to Spelman, Yale, Hampton, Boston College or a lesser known school, we knew how to help. As a result, scores of our children are now looking to brighter futures. Some are already in law, medical and graduate schools.

Right from the beginning, parents asked us for scholarship help. Nearly all were concerned about how to finance their children's higher education. BLACK EXCEL got busy creating our first Scholarship List. Not only did students and parents request the List. Libraries, colleges, high schools, churches, and other organizations did so as well. Write-ups about BLACK EXCEL began to appear in Black Collegian, Career Focus, College Preview, Emerge Magazine (Sept. '96), the Chicago Tribune...and other magazines and newspapers.  BLACK EXCEL has been spotlighted in a book by Dr. Hartman of the College Board and by Netbooks (the college edition).

We have been consulted by US News & World Report, as well as by top college-help organizations and experts for our input.

Our scholarship list has been called "the most comprehensive" available for Black students.

BLACK EXCEL services have expanded over the years to include an updated 350+ Scholarship List; a personalized College Help Package; a quarterly newsletter; a reference guide to 143 Historically Black Colleges, detailed profiles of individual schools (see below); and a Medical School Help Package. For more information and a free copy of BLACK EXCEL's newsletter, e-mail founder Isaac J. Black mailto:ijblack@blackexcel.org,%20ijblack1@aol.com(Please Note:  We have run out of free Newsletters; some of the material available at this Website is reprinted from our newsletter.)
