The College Success Foundation has been working in Seattle Public Schools since 2001, growing the number of schools over time.  It began its work in Highline Public Schools in 2011.  In 2016 it began working with students in Kent and Auburn schools.


Achievers Scholars (11th & 12th grades)

CSF college preparatory advisors work with 11th and 12th graders (Achievers Scholars) at the high schools to help them become college-bound and college-ready. Achievers Scholars are low-income, promising students who need financial and targeted academic support to prepare for a successful college experience. Located on the campus of the high school, CSF college prep advisors work on-site to deliver direct support services to students to guide them on their path to college.
