College Possible

College Possible makes college graduation a reality for capable, low-income students through an intensive curriculum of coaching and support. We envision a day when the future of America’s children is determined solely by their talent, motivation and effort, not their income.

College Possible places students in peer groups with other college-focused students and a trained AmeriCorps service member (the “coach”). Coaches utilize a structured curriculum, measurement reporting tools and management support to give students the resources they need to navigate the path to college completion. College Possible Chicago currently serve nearly 900 students at our six partner high schools across the city. Currently 88% of students will be the first generation in their family to earn a college degree. Last year, 90% of College Possible Chicago’s high school graduates enrolled in college and 83% persisted into their second year.
