For Partners

For Partners

Strong partnerships with high schools are critical to student success. We collaborate with students, families and counselors to exchange student updates, share resources and build a college-going culture in the schools we serve. There is no cost to the student, school or district for partnering with College Possible.

Using email, text messages, social media and phones, College Possible coaches connect with students from their junior year, to their senior year and all the way through college graduation. With creativity and persistence in engaging students, our coaches provide an array of services:

Junior Year

  • College exploration and goal setting
  • ACT preparation
  • Drafting application essays and resumes
  • Discussions about paying for college and making summer plans that support college

Senior Year

  • College essay and application assistance
  • Financial aid, FAFSA, (for students based in Oregon) and scholarship application support
  • College selection and enrollment guidance
  • College life skills and transition advising

After completing the high school program, students get continued coaching support from College Possible in college, including:

  • Connecting with existing resources and opportunities on campus
  • Registering for classes each term and renewing financial aid and scholarships
  • Understanding tuition statements
  • Support identifying post-graduation internships or career placement resources

WHAT COUNSELORS SAY:

“The individual college preparation and planning support my students receive from College Possible coaches is beyond the support I can provide them with a caseload of over 400 students. College Possible students are very knowledgeable of the application process, FAFSA process and have done good work on ACT prep!”
