Freezing Summer Melt

Through our innovative Summer Bridge programming, College Possible is freezing summer melt.

What’s summer melt? Nearly 1 in 5 high school students who plan on attending college in the summer “melt” away before they arrive on campus in the fall, due to financial, logistical and social barriers to college enrollment. “The lower a student’s income, the more likely they are to experience summer melt because they lack the necessary resources and support,” writes the US Department of Education.

After dedicating themselves to ACT or SAT practice tests, college applications, scholarship essays and 320 hours of intensive preparation over the past two years, College Possible’s incoming college students are leaving nothing to chance this summer.

In May and June, our students will be attending Summer Bridge sessions, designed to help students tackle enrollment and financial aid paperwork, access campus resources and prepare for the social transition to college. Summer Bridge is a proven way to ensure students remain on track for college: 93% of College Possible Summer Bridge participants have enrolled in college the following fall.
