Programs Overview

CollegeSpring programs take place over the course of an academic semester or year at schools and community organizations that primarily serve students from low-income backgrounds. We use three main strategies to support students during their journey to college:

  • SAT or ACT preparation
  • College application and financial aid support
  • Mentoring from current college students.  

Each of these components is specifically designed to meet the needs and answer the questions of students from low-income backgrounds, along with students from other groups that are historically underrepresented in college.
