We’re investing in students to build a stronger Philadelphia
About College Possible Philadelphia
At College Possible Philadelphia, we’re working to close the college degree divide. Since 2014, our college access and success programs have helped empower more than 1,615* students from disinvested communities on their path to a college degree. Our pioneering model matches eligible students with near-peer coaches and a proven curriculum designed to help them overcome the most common barriers to getting into college and completing their degree — all at no cost to students or their families.
Our curriculum also aims to develop students as dynamic leaders who exhibit grit, resilience and determination — instilling in them the confidence, skills and tools needed to succeed in college and beyond.
Through our partnerships with area high schools and college institutions, together we are advancing college equity for the greater Philadelphia and Delaware counties.
