College Summit

Founded in 1993, College Summit is a national non-profit organization with a mission to transform the college admissions process and increase the college enrollment rate of low-income students. Today’s college admissions system leaves behind a key portion of America’s talent: low-income, academically mid-tier students. Working in partnership with the critical players in the college-access challenge – students, parents, high schools, and colleges – College Summit enables all these players to accomplish what none can do alone: ensure that the community harnesses the talent of all college-capable students.
