Admission Possible strives to make college admission possible for students who have the potential to attend college but lack the resources to apply. Each Admission Possible student receives at least 320 hours of direct support over the junior and senior years of high school. During the fall and early winter months of their junior year students develop an understanding of the college admissions process. In January, the focus shifts to intensive ACT/SAT preparation. Admission Possible partners with Kaplan Test Preparation to provide each student with current test-prep materials. Students meet for test preparation bi-weekly until they take the ACT/SAT in the spring. AmeriCorps members work with students early in their senior year and focus on college searches, applications, and essay writing. Later in the year, they assist students in obtaining financial aid and scholarships as well as discussing the transition from high school to college. Once students have graduated from high school, Admission Possible continues to support their transition into college. AmeriCorps members help alumni problem solve and connect with resources at their colleges, coordinate alumni events to help students develop and strengthen peer networks, and create job shadowing opportunities for Admission Possible alumni.
