Getting students to and through college.


Thank you for your support of our high school seniors and college students! Most importantly, thank you for believing in our young people as they work to achieve their dream of obtaining a college degree.

The team definitely adapted well to the pandemic life and in many ways improved programming and student support through its all virtual platform. Twenty-nine high school seniors committed to a college or university and seventeen young adults graduated college. To date, the CAP Class of 2021 has been awarded over $170,000 in private scholarships. Recent college graduates have submitted applications to graduate programs, started law school and received job offers. Twenty-five rising high school seniors have been accepted into the CAP Class of 2022.

So if you share in our belief that all young people should have an equal opportunity to pursue their educational goals and dreams, please invest in our work by making a donation.

Gifts of all levels are welcome!

Dear Higher Edge Community,

As we look toward the future and the start of the upcoming academic year; we are announcing that Higher Edge will continue working virtually. While it had been our hope to open the office to our students and conduct on campus visits; the safety of our students and staff remains at the forefront of our work. Our small community just presents too many moving parts – Students attend 7 different high schools and almost 20 different college/university campuses.

Of course; we continuously monitor guidelines set forth by the CDC, state of Connecticut and local cities/towns in which our offices are located. Reassessments will be made as necessary and any changes will be shared accordingly.

Finally, we miss you! The office has been quiet for the last 17 months. The energy from events and the buzz of students talking and laughing cannot be replaced over Zoom. However, the virtual programming our advisors created during the pandemic proved to have far reaching positive impacts.

We cannot wait until COVID is safely behind us so that we can once again fully focus on advising and get back together!

In Community,
The Higher Edge Team
