We’re building a brighter future for all Milwaukee students
About College Possible Milwaukee
At College Possible Milwaukee, we’re working to close the college degree divide. Since 2008, our college access and success programs have helped empower more than 4,000* scholars from under-resourced communities on their path to a college degree. Our pioneering model matches eligible scholars with near-peer coaches and an intensive curriculum designed to help them overcome the most common barriers to getting into college and completing their degree — all at no cost to scholars or their families.
Through our partnerships with area high schools and college institutions we are advancing college equity for the greater Milwaukee community.
