Pre-College Services

College Possible

College Possible (formely College Access Now (CAN)) partners with high schools and communities to expand what’s possible. Our AmeriCorps College Coaches develop meaningful relationships with students, transforming their journey into manageable steps to ensure they have the tools they need to succeed. We offer support from high school through college graduation—until students return home as leaders, inspiring their communities for generations to come. Most CP students begin engaging with our High School Services in 11th grade, and their support continues through high school graduation to degree completion. Participation in College Possible’s program is voluntary and free to students. All students with an economic need and a G.P.A. of 2.0 or higher are eligible to enroll.

College Success Foundation 

The College Success Foundation provides a unique integrated system of support and scholarships to inspire underserved, low income students to finish high school, graduate from college and succeed in life. The Achievers Scholars receive the support and guidance students need to successfully navigate their junior and senior years, including the college admissions/financial aid process and the transition from high school to college. The College Preparatory Advisors (CPAs) are based in the school. They provide proactive academic advising, college planning information, grad end attendance monitoring and referrals for additional interventions.  

Minds Matter

Minds Matter transforms the lives of highly-motivated, low-income students by providing individualized mentoring, standardized test preparation, and writing and critical thinking instruction necessary to achieve college success. As a result of our national efforts since 1991, and those of our students and dedicated volunteers, we are proud to continue our legacy of 100% of our program graduates’ acceptance into a four-year college or university. The Seattle chapter of Minds Matter started in 2013 and serves high-school students throughout the Puget Sound area.

Summer Search

Summer Search  partners with high schools to identify low-income students who demonstrate resilience, altruism and determination but who are short on opportunity. Their goal is to transform what they believe is possible for themselves and develop the skills they need to become college-educated leaders who give back to their families and communities. Summer Search provides one-on-one mentoring, life-changing summer experiences and on-going college and career support.
