Our mission is to close the degree divide and make college possible for students from low-income backgrounds through an intensive curriculum of coaching and support.
College Possible is one of the largest and most successful college access and success programs in the country. We are a non-profit organization dedicated to coaching students from low-income backgrounds to and through college using a near-peer coaching model. Our programming is delivered to students by recent college graduates serving a year or two in AmeriCorps. This coaching support is provided at no cost to students or their families and begins in the fall of students’ junior year of high school, continuing for 6+ years until college graduation. During the 2021-22 school year, we will reach an estimated 21,245 students in all 50 states, with the support of 169 partner high schools and 107 partner colleges. Thanks to the support of their AmeriCorps coaches, compared to their peers from similar backgrounds, College Possible students are 30% more likely to enroll in college the year after high school graduation, and three times more likely to earn a bachelor’s degree after graduating high school.
