Low income and minority students are much less likely to attend college; especially, the nation's most selective colleges and universities.

They are more likely to take remedial classes in college and the college completion rate for minority and low-income students is lower than other groups. 

They enroll in advanced placement courses and pass the corresponding advanced placement exams at lower rates.


Their schools have fewer counselors serving more students. Thus, they have less access to quality college advising.

Our challenge is to ensure these students achieve personal success while helping them create the change they want to see in their schools and communities.
