Academic and Opportunity Support Programs

Our mission is to help students from middle school through college to overcome class, social, and academic barriers to higher education by primarily helping students who are income-qualified and the first to attend college in their families. We believe all students should have an equal opportunity to prepare for, attend, and graduate from college.
