About the College Possible Minnesota Navigate High School Program
In 2015, College Possible launched a Navigate program coaching high school students across the state of Minnesota. College Possible has a nearly 20 year track record earning top-of-field results in the college access and success field. This innovative tech-connected model of our program brings College Possible's proven coaching to talented low-income students across the state of Minnesota through one-on-one mentoring.
Eligible students hold a 2.5 GPA or higher and come from a low-income background. Students in the program receive personalized coaching during their junior and senior year, including:
orientation to the college application process

In college, students continue to receive support through college graduation, including financial aid advising, study skill and self-advocacy development and connections to on-campus resources.
