Mission:
College Possible, formerly known as Admission Possible, is a nationally-growing 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization making college admission and success possible for low-income students through an intensive curriculum of coaching and support.
Results:
Since our founding in 2000, students have increased their ACT test score by an average of 22%; 98 percent of our students have earned admission to college; 92 percent have gone on to enroll; and College Possible students are graduating at five times the rate of their peers. College Possible’s results are top in the field. Two external evaluations conducted in 2005 and 2009 further proved these excellent results. According to a 2011 Harvard study, College Possible more than doubles the chances a low-income student will enroll in a four-year institution. Additionally, the foremost associations in the college admission field recognized College Possible with their 2009 awards of excellence.
