College Possible


To make college admission and success possible for low-income students through an intensive curriculum of coaching and support.

Bottom Line for Portland

In the 2017-18 school year, 256 seniors assisted by College Possible submitted 1,466 college applications. Ninety-seven percent were admitted to college, earning more than $1 million in scholarships. In addition, 263 juniors increased their ACT test scores by an average of 18 percent. College Possible is a proven, research-based program founded in 2000 and launched in Portland in 2012 designed to ensure high school completion and post-secondary success.

“My experience in College Possible has been a gift. My coach was compassionate toward my struggles as a low-income student of color—the amount of patience and empathy she personally provided me is both a privilege and a lifelong lesson.”

—Gia, current Willamette University student, Gates Millennium Scholar and Gresham High School graduate of 2016
