College Possible makes college admission and success possible for students from low-income backgrounds through an intensive curriculum of coaching and support. College Possible is a proven, research-based program driven by the idea that Oregon’s students should go as far as their talent and motivation can take them.
Bottom Line for Portland
College Possible Oregon will serve more than 1,550 students on their path to becoming college graduates this year with astounding results, including 96% of our students in Portland earning admission to college. The COVID-19 crisis laid bare the systems of oppression and racial inequities that have been present in our community long before the pandemic. College Possible believes that access to equitable education is one pillar to end systemic injustice that has persisted for generations.
“Words cannot describe how thankful I am for having had the privilege and experience of participating in College Possible—it opened my eyes to my own potential.” –Janell Kim, David Douglas High School Class of ’16, Washington University Class of ’20
