Students Embrace College Possible Philadelphia

“A college education is the beginning of my future. An education will open the gateway of opportunities that will lead me to success,” said Greeta, a College Possible student at George Washington High School. College Possible Philadelphia has launched to make it happen for Greeta and 160 other high school juniors in its first year of programming.

College Possible Philadelphia junior coaches are already seeing the growth of their students in after-school sessions at partner high schools. Stephanie, a high school coach at George Washington High School, said, “I met a lot of my students while they were still in the interview and application process, and seeing them excited to be in my classroom after school has been an incredible experience. It’s amazing to see my students already growing in their confidence levels after a few short weeks.”

Tyanah, a College Possible student from Parkway Center City High School said, “I joined College Possible because I want to show people I can do this…just because I’m from the ‘hood’ doesn’t mean I can’t be successful.” Currently, only 12% of Philadelphia public-high school students graduate from college within six years of starting. College Possible is partnering with high schools and community members to help more students in Philadelphia graduate from college.
