About Admission Possible

At Admission Possible, we believe that every student deserves access to higher education, regardless of their economic circumstances. A college education can end the cycle of poverty for a student and his or her family forever, while providing our communities the workforce required to compete in a global economy.

Admission Possible was founded on three fundamental beliefs:

  • Many low-income high school students lack the resources to compete effectively for admission to colleges and universities.
  • Colleges and universities are very interested in admitting students from low-income backgrounds, but have difficulty identifying and attracting them.
  • In an increasingly diverse and global economy, the economic stability and competitiveness of the United States requires a highly educated workforce.
Mission Admission Possible is dedicated to helping low-income high school students prepare for and earn admission to college by providing four critical services:
  • ACT and SAT test preparation
  • Intensive guidance in preparing college applications
  • Financial aid assistance
  • Resources for the transition to college
