Program Description

College Horizons is a 501c3 non-profit dedicated to increasing the number of Native American, Alaska Native and Native Hawaiian students succeeding in college and graduate programs. Since 1998, we have served over 3,300 Native students on their path to higher ed through our admissions and financial aid workshops.

Of the 2,800 Native high school students served by College Horizons, 99% have been admitted to college, 95% matriculate onto a four-year institution, and 85% have graduated college in four-to-five years! College Horizons is founded on the premise that bright and talented Native American high school students do not receive quality college-counseling and academic advising.
