Mission Statement

Empowering students from low-income families to access, enroll and graduate from college at rates equal to their more advantaged peers.

Description

College Access Now (CAN) empowers students from low-income families to access, enroll and graduate from college at rates equal to their more advantaged peers. CAN has been operating at high schools in the Seattle area since 2005.

CAN's vision is that all students, regardless of income or background, have the opportunity to graduate from college.

CAN actively recruits economically disadvantaged, college-qualified youth--many of whom do not seek help on their own--and provides them with a proven-effective combination of college access curriculum and intensive individual support in their junior and senior years of high school. CAN also works to increase the school-wide college-going culture of the schools it serves. CAN current serves students at six Seattle high schools: Garfield, Franklin, West Seattle, Chief Sealth, Nathan Hale and Roosevelt.
