College Possible is making college admission and success possible for low-income students through an intensive curriculum of coaching and support. Our services include:
College Possible currently has programming in the Twin Cities, Milwaukee, and Omaha. In 2011-12, we serve 1,900 students through our core high school program. Students currently in the program report an average family income of less than $25,000. The average GPA of our students is 3.0 and 91 percent are students of color. For the current seniors in our program, the average baseline ACT score as juniors (before receiving our services) was 15, which places the students in the bottom 10th - 15th percentile of all ACT test-takers.
College Possible recruits low-income students unlikely to obtain admission to a four-year college without our help. Eligibility requirements include a 2.0 GPA or higher, an interest in attending a four-year college and the ability to attend after-school sessions, as well as meeting income guidelines.
