The mission of college possible is to make college admission and success possible for low-income students through an intensive curriculum of coaching and support.
College Possible Minnesota is coaching low-income students to and through college. Dedicated AmeriCorps members serve as guides, coaching students on their path to college graduation. We are proud to be serving more than 2,500 high school students attending 56 high schools across the state, and 5,500 college students on 249 campuses across the country.
The Junior Curriculum orients students to the college application process, provides extensive preparation for the ACT/SAT exam, introduces students to college life through campus tours and allows time for students to apply for summer enrichment opportunities!
The Senior Curriculum expands and continues the college readiness journey students start in their Junior Year and leads students through the college application process. This happens through assisting students in applying to college, financial aid applications (FAFSA or MN Dream Act), and scholarships. In addition to applications, students will participate in 1:1’s with their coach and group conversations within the cohort designed to guide students through the transition to college.
As a result of the hard work put in by our students and coaches, 98% of College Possible seniors are admitted to college. Once there, they are five times more likely to graduate than their low-income peers.
