What We Do

We envision a day when a student's future is determined solely by their talent, motivation and effort. We offer support from high school through college graduation, assisting students as they continue to develop the skills they need to become community leaders. The impact of a college degree goes beyond the individual student, elevating possibilities for friends, families and all of us who benefit from a more informed and empowered society. 

College Possible makes college admission and success possible for students from low-income backgrounds through an intensive curriculum of coaching and support. We provide: (1) Academic support through ACT test preparation; (2) College application assistance; (3) Financial aid consulting; (4) Guidance on the transition to college; and (5) Comprehensive support toward college degree completion.
