We believe a stronger Texas is fueled by college equity
About College Possible Texas (formerly College Forward)
Since 2003, our college access and success programs have helped put more than 16,8001 students throughout Texas on the path to a college degree. Every student we serve comes from under-resourced backgrounds while 80% identify as persons of color.2 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.
Through our partnerships with area high schools and college institutions, we are advancing college equity for the greater Texas community.
College Forward is now College Possible Texas
College Forward, the pioneering college access and success nonprofit that has for 20 years helped Central Texas high school and college students chart pathways to and through higher education, today unveiled its new name, College Possible Texas, marking its formal expansion statewide and its full integration into the College Possible organization. The announcement comes two years after the organization merged with College Possible in an effort to leverage our substantial, national resources and reach in support of students throughout the Texas.
