Mission Statement

College Forward coaches underserved, motivated students to achieve the benefits of higher education and a college degree.

Description

College Forward is a nationally-recognized, near-peer coaching organization that pairs recent college graduates with students to empower them to achieve their postsecondary goals. Our students are 2.5 times more likely to graduate than their unsupported peers.

Since 2003, College Forward has grown from a local college access program to become a national leader in the higher education nonprofit industry. In 2005, we expanded our programming to offer college completion services, becoming one of the first organizations in the country to provide college persistence support.

We also created a unique student information system: CoPilot, which we utilize today to manage our students’ data and license to partners nationally who currently serve more than 350,000 students.

We are now implementing our most ambitious vision: to dramatically advance and scale our efforts to serve many more students in realizing their education and career goals through personalized, tech-mediated coaching services. In July 2021, College Forward became part of the national College Possible organization.
