Description

About College Forward
Since 2003, College Forward has coached underserved, motivated students to achieve the benefits of higher education and a college degree. We believe that all motivated Texas students can access and complete college. Our personalized, near-peer coaches and resources in both high schools and higher education institutions across the state offer the right amount of support to empower our students every step of the way. Our approach is working: College Forward students are five times more likely to earn a Bachelor’s degree than their peers. We can’t wait to keep leveling the playing field. As part of our continued commitment to deepen our impact and scale meaningful student outcomes, College Forward became a part of the national College Possible organization in July 2021.
