Harvard researcher Dr. Chris Avery says in the Pioneer Press how the St. Paul-based College Possible differs from others in preparing low-income students for higher education:
“While there are many organizations working to promote college access for low-income students, to my knowledge, College Possible is the only program that has demonstrated its success in increasing applications and enrollment at four-year colleges in a randomized trial.”
